|Finished per the workshop. Uh huh. Was not happy|
|After sending the above photo to Klara, I added more paint|
|Close up of layers and texture|
|And more paint|
|2nd project from this workshop|
|Loving the glass beads medium|
|Loving the shift of colors and layers|
I kind of liked the first one with all the reds and oranges until I took a photo and sent it to Klara in Cleveland (Hi, Klara!). Then realized, as she also commented, that the orange/red was overwhelming. Just too, too, orange. So back to adding yellow ochre and some white with teal. This morning I am thinking it still needs some contrast, so I have a few things in mind. Then, I swear, that one will be done or in the garbage. Either way, I am moving on today.
The second one will have some subtle green shading added to take the starkness of the white out, so the green gold transition is softer. Another suggestion from Klara, and I so agree. What the hell did we do before excellent cameras on our phones, and text messages? The green canvas has molding paste, glass beads, and crackle medium placed over some heavy body white paint.
Ok. Back to work. The plan is to finish up these two projects, then try the third from the workshop. Thanks for stopping by.
