This mixed media, Thru the Winter Window, came about with the left over paint from the color wheel the other day.
I did a wet in wet and appied course sea salt on the wet paint. The large star like affects reminded me of a winter frozen window. The cardinal was a small blob of rather red on the paper. I found the cardinal to be located in a not so convenient spot on the paper and had to play around a little to get the right size and number of window panes to make it work! Placed the tree based on the red blob, cardinal, then placed the window panes. The window frame is painted with arcylic paint. I am really happy with how it looks. I didn’t think it needed anything else there are enough things going on.
This is a 9 x 6 piece of water color paper and the paints used in the underpainting are my Winsor & Newton Cotmans.
I also worked on preparing the next set of Playing Card Challenge cards. I really enjoy the process of doing them if I stay ahead and don’t have to rush to get them done! Here is a sneak peek.
Going with a mixed media theme with paper as a back ground base. I have a few ideas where these ones are headed, we’ll see if I stick with a plan.
Until next time…….what is beyond your window pane
