Yesterday I worked ...... today I am playing

Well that's not strictly true. True I worked on my City & Guilds course yesterday but it's playing really. I have been having such fun. We have been painting brown parcel paper. This one using water colour paints.


This one was painted with water colour paint, painted with a PVA/water mix and then scrunched. I then went over it with an oil pastel in lemon/yellow and repainting with the PVA/water mix. The PVA/water mix gives a nice shine and brings out the colour.
I painted this one with gouache and scrunched and painted over with Markal (Shiva) oil paintsticks.
This is my favourite piece. I painted with gouache, scrunched and painted over it with the PVA/water mixture. SCrunched again and then finally lightly rubbed it with rub 'n' buff gold. The picture doesn't show the richness of colours that the original has. Love it.
