Gold Paint Series: Gold in the Background
I wanted to try mixing gold in the color wash. It had an interesting effect-- rather than mixing with the wet pigments like I thought it would, it seemed to just move it-- pushing it out of the way to stand all on it's own.
I've been doodling for a couple of days now and I've really enjoyed it. It sure helps pass the time at work and I like to see what I come up with. Here are a few pictures from my art journal. They will all eventually be painted.
I got a new handmade watercolor pallet from Designs by Rachel Beth on Etsy and I couldn't wait to try it. I'm pretty excited about how this one turned out-- especially the yellow rose shape. That one didn't turn out so great the last time I tried it. I think using a smaller brush helped.
