Well I am back at work again... it is good to see everyone and get back into a routined day again. The students don't start till mid February but I am pretty busy ordering brushes, paper, paint, mediums, ink and pens etc... I have a storeroom full of boxes to be opened and it will be like Christmas all over again.
I have had these ideas running around in my head about a different technique to try. I saw it on a poster a few years ago and thought 'I will try that one day'. Well I think today might be the day...? The idea is to paint colours in the background and then to paint over this leaving some of the these colours showing through becoming foreground characters. It will be interesting as I am thinking that I will be able to pick and choose which parts of the background I want to keep and what I want to dull back. Well that is what I am hoping will happen... will let you know.
