Been working on the camera and hands. For me, working on what I call "details" is intense. I like the first stages of a painting where I can do large, sweeping movements. These are small movements. With pathetic brushes. I changed the angle of the camera, and made the fingers smaller.
Also puttering with this Temple that many of you have seen before in various stages. I will glue it to this large sheet of Lotka (I think) paper. Since I coated areas in wax I can no longer muck about with the painting as it is done in acrylic. I used some oil pastels to manipulate colors on top of the wax.
I glued on three of these leaves. They become very subtle once glued.
I had pressed them awhile ago. Forgotten I had them. Discovered them in my flower press and it took me awhile to figure out what flower they came from. They are marvelous both in looks and in texture and next year I will press all I can get my hands on. Originally they were red. Can anyone guess what flower they came from???
