Jenn over at Just Add Water Silly has started a new weekly prompt - this week it's rainbow ...in whatever iteration or interpretation you want to explore. So I made my flowers in a rainbow of colors....happy, bright, rainbow colors.
Starting with a watercolor loose painting, I added washi tape, tissue paper, handmade paper (not by me), oil pastels and watercolor pencils for detail. I submit: Summer Bouquet (feels a little presumptuous to name my efforts, but I need the practice :)
Handmade paper texture added on far right along with washi tape blooms. Detail below.
Decided to try some black oil pastel since I'd done other pieces and liked the contrast it offered. Didn't like it here....too harsh, too random, too.....much. What to do?
Add white details to balance and cover up some of the black. I think it helped, but wish I would have left it alone. May go back and add a little more floral detail, but I've
messed experimented with it enough for now.
Be sure to join the creative fun at both Butterfly Effect and Artist's Playroom.
