Finished the Stag
I finished my painting by deepening the colors, especially on the stag, and adding the lettering which is the first few lines of Longfellow's "Evangeline." The final touch was additions of metallic paints - bronze and turquoise - around the edges and dots of bronze on some of the letters. For the edges, I dipped the tip of my finger in the paint then rain it along the edge. I like this method because it gives a nice, uneven edge which, I think, goes with the uneven texture of the masa rice paper.
