We finally got the propane gas heater installed in the basement of our mountain cabin. Just in time for summer! Doesn't matter, I am looking forward to being able to quilt in the colder months. One of these days, we will also have a ceiling, sheet rock walls, and a floor!
Then...off to Germany. I decided to try to paint like Wassily Kandinsky, who although a Russian, spent a great amount of time in Germany. Here is my impression of his painting Houses in Munich (1908).
I am also working on two paintings of flowers inspired by Bob's videos. They involve painting bright splotches of color, and then forming the shapes of the flowers and vase by negative painting around the original colors. Mine are both works in progress on top of some old unsuccessful journal pages.
You would never believe what these two pages once looked like. I like being able to paint over some bad attempts. These are both done in acrylic paint. It is much easier to do the negative painting with a more opaque paint than watercolor.
Next up are some more Bible art journaling pages.
In the first one, I used Bob Burridge's techniques again to apply the light pastel colors of the angel, and then use darks to negative paint the shape of the angel and wings. This one is done in watercolor. I like that you can still see some of the original bright colors under the dark blues and purples of the background.
