I'm skipping the rambling this week...
I'm getting a post together for the big PARTY on Saturday, July 14.
Please come back and join us to see tons of beautiful creative spaces!
Here is when I last left this painting.
It's been quite a process to take photos of it and really think through explaining what comes next.
In this case, the black lines come next!
Add some more doodling..
A little more color-
reds and some gold.
And then I went nuts with the most gorgeous Jade Green watercolor crayon.
By this point, I have turned the whole canvas around and am now working on it in a different position.
I have had an idea for a bird flying in the middle of it all for a long time.
I cut one out of some vintage sheet music and laid it down with gel medium.
It needs to be blended in to look like it's been a part of the painting, so that's where the fun comes in.
More color, inks and watercolor crayons are used in and around the bird, sometimes continuing the black lines, sometimes continuing a color from the back ground.
Here she is in all her glory.
I know I'm finished when I leave it on the table for a bit, walk away and do something else in another room and when I come back, I look at it and have a big smile on my face.
I hope you have enjoyed the process as much as I have and feel ready to fly free yourself in whatever you do today!!
See you Saturday for Where Bloggers Create!!!
