Truth be told, I was fearful of tackling the water.......
So the painting hid away in the cupboard for a week or so
and then I took it out to study it.
I decided the background trees were too yellow, and the rocks there were too golden.
Then I added some more colour to the rocks in the middle ground, and added some to the foreground boulder.
oh, no! look at my goof! the water on the hills in the background should be flowing downhill
What did I do?
First, I put in some blue--wrong! it should be brownish and/or greenish. What was I thinking?!
And I put it in flowing side to side--wrong again!
I tried to remove it. hmmm. Then I tried to cover it. no good.
I removed some of the colour from the rocks along the river to add highlights, and then I added some colour to the water. It still needs a lot of work.
Lastly, I applied a thin layer of gesso to white out my 'blue' water. Once it's dry, I can try again.
Luscious threads and fibers and silk ribbon.
Wildflower, perle, silk, and rayon thread goodies.
I'm looking forward to playing with them all!
Hope you have time to play this weekend.
Thanks for visiting.
