Still Taking Leave - but wanted to Share This
I had previously done a watercolour wash on all the pages with different colours and then spattered watercolour paint wash with a brush onto the pages - some I used rock salt as well. This gave me a fantastic background to do some pencil paintings.
This is the front page ... you have to know that I did not have flowers to copy from ... I copied a line drawing and coloured from the heart, how I recall these flowers to look. So they may not be botanically correct. That is okay - because it is a journal of my favourite flowers!
All of these Pencil Paintings were done with a base of colour, a layer of Zest It Pencil Blend and then more layers of colour.
I have had a restful weekend doing what I love to do - draw - with colour!
Okay ... see you all in a week or so.
