Paper and paste
Today I did a mixed media painting with ripped up pieces of paper from French book. I pasted the pieces down with gel medium. I used a black pen to draw the picture. No sketching, all done in just one solid stroke. Hence the odd looking eyes :)
Then, like a coloring book, I filled in the lines with acrylic paint. I finished it off with an antique wash around the sides.
Thank you all for your comments on the kitties on newspaper and books! I see you all can relate. Opie and Lily are sleeping right now like little Angels. (they are resting up to become maniacs when I turn the lights out tonight!)
Hugs to all!
"French Girl with Striped Cat" is up for grabs on ebay.
