BALL JARS 2

(Photos are taken as the painting developed and there is a curl to the paper, if you are wondering why the odd angle of the jars!)

Here is the painting with miskit to preserve white reflected areas.

This is the initial wash.

There was a 2nd layer of miskit applied to retain more light areas.
This is the 2nd wash of color.

Nice to see the process, Deb...I never succeeded with masking fluid!

Thanks guy!

Ann Buckner said...

Enjoying the progress, Deb. Hope they "nailed" the little culprit that did the vandalism by now.

This is really looking good already.

Ann and Vicki - thanks.
Ann - got more info on him and he's well known in the neighborhood but apparently you have to catch him "in the act" which no one has been able to do yet. There is some satisfaction in knowing that others are aware and sympathetic.
