Well I had grand ideas, for a grand finale and what I got instead was an epic fail. So at 11:58 pm, I started over again. Almost botched this one as well. Whew!
Hours on my first attempt. Layers of texture, palette knife. Painted flowers. Not great. Layered more color on the background and foreground. Not better. Painted the vase. O.K., that looks really cool.
I put crackle over the petals. Waited. Very few cracks. Added a second layer, knowing full well it would not work. And it didn’t. Cracks developed in just a few areas. I rubbed on dark rust, cracks barely visible. Tried again with indigo. You can see the cracks, but now the flowers look dirty.
The scan is even worse than the original. Don’t know why but the right side looks much darker than it actually is. Tomorrow will be better!
