A fortnight ago I showed the group the background for this painting and we discussed which way round it should go and I told them which way round I was thinking and then Sandra suggested the city outline, which I did in charcoal. I've come to love this painting.
Reflections of a City
This week I worked with another lady showing her how to add inks to crackle paste: using a water bottle spray the crackle paste area and then drop inks onto the crackle paste. You may need to spray more water or use paper towel to mop up excess, and use a paintbrush or tilt the board to move the inks around. I'm thinking of making a video on how to do this as what I've seen on youtube about crackle paste is dreadful.
5:30pm Update: just added the background colour and gloss varnish to these leaves.
