I am wondering if anybody has some spare time to help me out, I am thinking of getting some greeting cards printed, about four image designs, my problem is deciding which would be the best pictures to have as a card design, and which are the most versatile images people may wish to purchase at Hampshire open studio. So if anybody has some time to spare,to take a look at my gallery of subjects, and possibly list roughly five images you like, in my replies, I can then decided the top four to get printed. Thank you in advance for your time, I am at a stumbling block with this decision.
Todays posts are more of a play with mediums, the first is ‘ Hettie’ , painted on home made claybord using ink and watercolour, then the mane scratched into the board. A little rough and ready, but I wanted to try out the scratching technique, and I must say I was surprised at how effective it was.
The second is an Arab study, this is on watercolour paper, coated in my home made claybord paste ( pva, White acrylic and China clay AKA kaolinite) I was going to use just charcoal on this, but it went wrong, so I added watercolour and then some pastels ( soft) . Really this was a waste of a good piece of watercolour paper, the claybord mix is best used on a hardboard.
have a great day all, the sun is out here in the uk, yippee 😀
