I am having lots of fun wrinkling up wet watercolor paper and then dropping or painting with watercolors--I then let it dry a little and go back in and do a little negative painting - My paper does not hold up to this technique very well I'm using a student grade 90lb -I am going to try some other papers -
I'm not very familiar with negative painting techniques and sometimes I just define an area or two - but talk about loose - this is very very loose - two of these pieces I have done in other media I think I blogged them if so I'll post a link to my original versions - I have no idea if these are any "good" but I do know that I enjoy making them and looking at them so I guess that is all that counts for me- these are all small 3"x5"-
This is rock creek I did it in colored pencil as a thank you note to my uncle here
I tried this scene in pastels here I like this version better.
I was recently diagnosed with stage IV small cell lung cancer - so I am enjoying my life and living one day at a time - Making art makes me happy.
I play hammered dulcimer and that makes me happy too.
I have a great husband and our two grown children are married so now we have four wonderful children. I am fortunate to have a close, loving, extended and immediate family.
