On my easel are a series of three paintings showing a glimpse of my process. I begin by applying patches of colour in layers, allowing each layer to dry. Then I play with stencils, homemade stamps and paint pens. Finally I draw some 'windows', in this case, some carnations, then I paint out the background. Next is some fine pattern work with paint pens to finish. Stay tuned.
This journal page was fun to create.
I used Liquitex basics and Dylusions paint through a dot stencil in several layers to build up the flower and part of the background.
I also stamped swirly designs in the top section before dry brushing to finish. Finally I scribbled detail onto the flower with a uniball signo black gel pen.
I am an artist and teacher and I love to share what I know and what I learn. I was previously a high school art teacher, now I enjoy art journaling, mixed media, pottery, painting and teaching adults from my home studio.
