This was a fun one. It came together quickly. I started with a stencil and acrylic paint. Next, I spattered more acrylic. I used matte medium and paper from my book of Shubert music. A gift from my good friend Christiane Drieling.

A wash of watercolor on the table, then on to the blooms. I pulled out a Liquitex paint pen. SO fun to work with. It has a chiseled tip, you can make thin or thick lines. I added layers of watercolor. More pen, more watercolor. The paint pen is surprisingly translucent. Top right you can still see some of the music notes.

The red is actually shiraz/deep magenta watercolor. It looks more of burnt deep orange in person. And it scanned as red. Some areas of that were too heavy, so I went back in with a wet brush and lifted the color, or diluted it. I like the messy look of that.

I used a Crayola purple gel pen to define the vase and horizontal line. Thank you Nelvia! And I finished with a white pencil, scribbled everywhere. Fun 🙂

February – Day 24 Of 30

This started with the same dot pattern that was in Day 23. The “leaf” pattern was there as well, but in a soft peach color. (Scroll down to see.) I added 3 or 4 layers of very wet acrylic using a palette knife to spread  the paint. There is collage, the heart shape had words, and there is a long strip on the left. Tissue top and bottom.

I kept the paint thin, to allow the previous layers to show. But somewhere a long the way, the words were lost. Interestingly, some of the polka dots, the first layer, are showing thru full color. How weird is that?  The vase is Neocolor II. Thinking I might go back and “wash” some of that away, to show more of the texture.

Snowed today. Mingus disappeared. On and off for most of the afternoon. It didn’t really stick, but late tonight I noticed there was a light dusting. I think that is all we’re going to get. But my fingers are crossed for more .

It’s been awhile since I painted sunflowers. I am missing them. So for today, late to the challenge, sunflowers. I have two more canvas panels started. But I am feeling like I want to do some straight watercolor. Tomorrow’s painting will be a surprise for you and I both!

For drawing three, the day was #20, and the comment from that day was #6.

Congratulations Sharon Kullberg!

Let me know which of these you would like!
Thanks everyone, for following along!
One more drawing this month!
