The Farm

My friends live on a farm. We love to go and spend time with them. Since I was playing with watercolors today, I decided to do this scene of the barn and the mountains on canvas paper. It was from a photo i took last time we went to see them. It's small but I love it. Think I'll frame it and hang in my studio. Looking at it makes me happy!

Flowers fever

I've worked in my journal a lot this week but haven't had time to post any of the pages. It is more fun to paint than to post. LOL
Here is a page I did in acrylics and used some Pitt pens and charcoal for shading and outlining. I love to feel a page after it has been painted in acrylics and coated in gell medium.
This is a technique I saw Donna Downey do and I wanted to try it. You create a wild background, paint your focal points and then paint over your original background letting some of it show through. Add some textures for interest and you!re through.
I think I'll try this again. It was fun.
