an adventurous wonderment into the tangled weeds of art
you saw the beginnings in yesterday's post. i wanted to keep him almost transparent so applied each layer of color with a lot of water and a loose touch. the darks really brought him to life and well, i absolutely love the finished moth. he adds a lot of charm and detail to the canvas and brings a part of who i am as well. hope you are tempted into the studio to give playing with backgrounds a try. you just never know what you will get in the end and isn't that part of the fun. i know for me it is a perfect way to just let go and enjoy the process of putting paint and paper to canvas. love it!
