Wet on Wet
Still practicing wet on wet techniques. Another lesson from Hilary Page (see a previous post.) This turned out much better, I think. I wish I would have taken pictures all along the way, but I didn't think of it in time. I first clear water wet the space for a particular color. I then dropped in the color and let it spread at will. I did this for each separate color. This left the flowers and leaves undefined. After it was dry , the finish was to define the petals and stems with a dry brush technique. hmmm . . . . I wonder if hubby thinks this one is unfinished, since I didn't use a wash on the background???
