Love and Heart...and h2o
I'm getting ready to conduct a water media workshop this January 22. We are going to collage, water color, and gouache to create a Valentine image for Valentine's Day in February. I thought, dear readers that you might like to see my start. The first thing I did was to glue down the word LOVE in different type fonts onto a sheet of 140lb. cold press water color paper. Then with a large brush and some puddles of beautiful colors on my palette, I laid down some juicy washes. After this stage, I most likely will paste some more LOVES down, and then go over portions of the painting in opaque gouache. I have a wee bit of a plan, but most of all, I am following my nose! We shall see the results in my next post. Wish me luck, and wave me goodbye. Oh...HAPPY 2011!!!
