Well, I have been back at university for 2 weeks now and I am so happy to be back and painting. I am currently working on my 5th painting. I am playing around with colours and layering colours, forms and composition. All of the stretchers were made by me, which is something new for me,… Continue reading NEW PAINTINGS
This journal page I was just using to wipe excess paint off my brush, but I decided to play around with it after it dried. I really like the pink flower patterns on the right, I think the pink stands out brilliantly. I used washi tapes, flower pressed papers, paints, pens and pearl effects.
