This is a Corkscrew Rush. I think. I have seen these as ornamentals in landscaping also potted indoors. The leaves are pencil-like. Round. They spiral and curl and grow every which way. So fun don’t you think?

I started with a patterned paper. Used a brayer to add layers of green and turquoise. Added watercolor crayon in areas, and used a pen to bring out some of the patterns.

Day 13 And 14

Today was an abstract day. Abstracts with a palette knife. I worked on four small pieces, 5 x 7 Heavy Yupo, 144lb. I really like the heavy Yupo. It does not buckle, even under thick layers of acrylic. I did not tape the sheet down, but it did not warp. Very nice!

I’m still undecided about this one. So much so, that I took to cropping it in Photoshop. The colors are muted, maybe that is what bothers me. Not sure. I do really like the colors. Happy for the practice,

think it would help to use a thick medium with the color. These are craft paints, and some a thicker than others. I need MORE palette knife practice. I like the 2nd and 4th images best. What do you think?
