http://www.art-and-sole.blogspot.com/. i knew the background should be an aqua blue and that it give the feeling of water. so, i gessoed my playing card and did a wash of color, while wet i laid a paper towel into it giving you this great dotted texture. i then spattered with another, duller blue for added drips. the faucet is out of sewing pattern paper and i've shaded here and there to give it dimension. the handle is painted on as well as the drip from the tap. i am really pleased with the whole effect and although simplistic in style, it had a lot of technique to it and was a great learning experiment.
