New techniques

I have been having fun lately with some new techniques and layering. Using texture and stencils and lots of different mediums in the process.

I love the inktense blocks by Dewent which are like water colour paints but they produce beautiful bright colours. They work like watercolours and can be applied wet on wet.

Started like this!

Can you see the woman on the top right? Looks like she is holding a baby. 

Just like the body your creativity can reveal a lot about you. I needed nurturing at the time. Too much in my head lately! That what art does for me. its a bit like colouring in I suppose, it takes you into the here and now.

Ended up like this! Lots of layers. I brought out 'The florist' and her delivery of flowers. took out the negative aspect.

Might need a a few tweeks! The camera reveals a lot of things to correct re the elements of design. But it just goes to show you how you can bring out what is there on the canvas or paper. And what is your art trying to tell you?
