There is a fair bit of process involved in making these canvases and here are a few steps at the beginning..... I then of course got carries away and forgot to take any more photos until I was finished
Draw the outlines of the areas and block the canvas with - in this case Jo Sonja's sky blue which I quite like
Add other colours while the paint is still wet I am adding here Red Violet and Smoked Pearl
Stencil on patterns - I did this with Glimmer mist (which doesn't like the varnish I added later :( ) so I won't be using those together again
Step three apply papers with Golden Gel Medium to the areas - in this case the leaves
Add bits of interest like this key
Then I work with a variety of mediums, stencils, paint , and add lots of elements (I like to call them surprises), shading as I go..... plus the ubiquitous bubble wrap - which I was actually trying to avoid - but it actually held it all together........
I will try to do these steps later on again for something else...........
