Join me on my journey as I create visual art in various media including acrylic, pastel, pencil, watercolor, and mixed media as well as ceramics and needle felting. I am also writing and illustrating a children's picture storybook. Regardless of the medium, my subject is nearly always animals!

"Tea in the Hedge" session 2
At this point, I've blocked in the far background, working to establish the fundamental colors and values. When I was done, I noticed that the right side is quite a bit darker than the left side. I didn't intent that, but I like it because the left part of the background seems pushed back father than the right side.
I've painted around the branches and fern fronds because I didn't want to lose my lines.
So far so good with painting on the drawing paper mounted onto the board.
