YUPO PEONY 2

I taped off areas I wanted to keep white – here I used plain, old masking tape.


I’ll be applying the fluid acrylics in a pouring manner and dropping paint with a brush, since my aim here is to build up light, thin layers.
This is how it looked following the first layer. The colors used are DaVinci hansa, quin. gold, cobalt and quin. rose.

Looking good, Deb. I never had the patience to tear lots of tape into specific shapes, myself, and would just get out the Pebeo Drawing Gum (well, I do not have patience in my list of virtues - at all).

This should be interesting.
Did you decide on the direction on the leaves? 3 or 4 would be my thinking. It is a beautiful piece Deb.

Gary - thanks for the vote. Looks like the decision has been made for me - soon as I get time I'll be finishing those leaves!
