Adding more color today

Just adding more detail with the shadows on the title and more outlining and shading of the letters.

Illuminated Piece

I'm starting the painting process on this piece, worked out the colors and got started. I still have to add the top of the title and a couple of lines at the bottom but wanted to get started on the color. Now that I'm finally finished with some things that had to be done first, I'll keep at this until finished!
The leaves will be green and blue and there will be some repeated gold in the tiny leaves and maybe the flowers. The flowers will be a light violet- one is painted.

Painting Almost Finished

I'm not sure if I'll add a little more color to the upper vines on the wall. This was painted in the walled in garden where the photos of the winter garden were taken.

More pages for the Make Your Mark Journal

The ones with color were done with acrylic paint mixed with some matte medium which helped spread the paint around the page better.
Napkins, stamping, and white gesso marks were added.

Little Book from Callig Class

This was a fun project with sink art using sumi ink on textwove paper. I always like to have my class make a book just for fun, usually adding text but this one doesn't.

Collage Continued

In the bottom photo I added a little wash of color to the gate. We started this with a sheet from a telephone book and built up after that. I'm using the tack iron method except with the many tissue papers which are just added with matte medium or polymer.
And these images are from a garden in Lockport that I came across in the winter. Our sketch class visited it and worked there in the summer.

Some of my work in Yves' class

In the bottom photos the marks were put down first and then the lettering so they may be upside down.
