Share my adventures and mis-adventures as I create original art in various media. I work in both 2D (oil, acrylic, pastel, pencil, colored pencil, watercolor, and mixed media) as well as 3D (polymer clay, paper clay, ceramics, and felting). My favorite subject is animals. You will find comments on my experiences with several art products and methods.

"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.
