|Pretty pot of flowers down in Peru|
|Work in progress: colored pencil on canvas board|
|The finished piece|
I started working on this little piece this morning. The
photograph was taken during my trip to Peru.
I wanted to play around with the techniques
that I learned from my last workshop....
colored pencil and gamsol on watercolor canvas board.
I started drawing with the pencils, and used the gamsol to soften
them. I didn't like how that was going, so I added some
watercolor on top of the colored pencil. And then finally, I used
some acrylic paint to add the small white baby's breath flowers,
and a few details here and there.
So, it ended up "a little of this, a little of that".
But it turned out ok.
I will include it with the Peru art show in the gallery
that is going up soon.
