Open studios with Sandra Spagnuolo was so much fun yesterday! We played with tempera paint pucks. We added charcoal, we then dipped the whole thing into water. Some of the paint and charcoal washed away. We then worked back into the painting. We were definitely not to get too attached to what we had done as it could wash away in the next step! Lessons in letting go, letting the art flow. Good stuff.
This piece seems to be a bit dark to me although I do like it. We coated our pieces with matt medium but that doesn't have to be the final step. I will continue to work with this piece. Maybe add some pencil crayon or something to lighten it up a bit.

Not that it will look any different. There is certainly a learning curve for working with a Mac! I'm getting there with a little help from my friend Mary Lynn.
Also with the help of Mary Lynn I have completed my first iphoto book. I called in Flower Portraits. Pictured above is the photo I used for the cover. I can't wait get the book!

I had a play day this past week with the usuals. We enjoyed some art and some laughs. Pictured above is some index cards we inked. The plan is to make them into a small book. I will post it when it gets done.
It was fun to just let the ink fly.
