DAY 13 The Dance

The Dance
Well here it is, already DAY 13 and I see I am not the only one who is floundering.  Didn't have as much time in the art room but did get to play a bit.  I had gessoed a couple of sheets of paper and put them on top of each other, and of course when I tried to separate they lost some of their layers in places.   Thought it would be interesting to see what the paint did with that.  You an see some of the darker spots is where the paper was damaged and the paint really settled into those areas.  Yes, it is an effect, but I learned the lesson to not put wet papers on top of each other any more.  Also got some practice with a fine liner.  I had purchase a couple but really hadn't use them, so now fill the second one with black and I will be good to go.

Tanks much for stopping by.


  1. Sun and sky, ocean and electric enthusiasm. I love the cloudy blues, the line work and the composition. :)

  2. Yes so much happens when you place wet on wet paper. Happy accidents that move your imagination! All part of the process! Love your dancer in the sky!

  3. this is very cool Nelvia. I It may be more obvious in person that the paper was damaged but from here it looks great. a super mix of abstract and fantasy.
