Well you remember last time I was exploring Sculpey clay and colored pencil. I will admit that this work did not take me along the artistic lines that I first envisioned but I did learn from the experience. I did not like the effect that colored pencil had on the flower so I used acrylic paint to accomplish what I had in mind. Using the paint brush was an accomplishment in itself with my shaky hands that sometime have a mind of their own. For the background I used watercolor and colored chalk, using a small stiff brush to blend the chalk.
After all that I attached the background to the mat then attached the flower to the background. Placing the flower just where I wanted it was another feat in itself but I feel I learned from the experience. Will I do it again? Probably not anytime soon because I am starting a drawing class Tuesday night and it is my understanding we will be working on drawing a horse. That too will be something new and challenging!
