This watercolor was inspired by Ivy Newport’s Watercolor Muse in her Studioworks Journal. I used Daniel Smith Watercolors and Derwent Watercolor Pencils. Graphite for the sketch.
Inspired by a couple of different online classes; AWAKE and Lifebook 2015. The image is an image transfer on watercolor paper; some Dover image flowers collaged on top; before I added any more collage or paint I took a photo with my iPhone; the rest is all done digitally using content for the most part from the AWAKE class
Had fun painting on a rainy afternoon on a piece of previously prepared white muslin coated with Venetian plaster. I used a lesson from one of Kate Thompson’s online classes, but chose to work with gouache, re-inkers and gesso rather than acrylic paint. Love the technique of painting on Venetian plaster, whether it is applied to fabric or a wooden canvas.
