Here is a close up shot of the top section of the painting I altered recently. I love the blend of colours and the richness of the gold leaf which  I have tried to balance by adding Gold Touch around each heart. I also used Pearl White Touch to give dimension to the white lettering. I added stencilling to 4 of the hearts by applying a mixture of different coloured acrylic paint with a damp baby wipe.

Well here it is! I finished titivating this picture last night and I am thrilled with it. I really enjoyed drawing with Pebeo Touch. It brings out all the detail that I wanted. I also like the stenciling which makes some of the hearts look a bit different. Next job is to decide where on this wall I’m going to hang it!

This little canvas is a work in progress. I started by stencilling some mid green acrylic paint through fine sequin waste over a paler yellowy green background followed by stencilled metallic acrylic leaves. I then painted some other complementary colours on top. It hibernated for a while until I had some snippets of organza and other metallic fabrics on my desk and I decided to collage some of the fabric onto the leaves. It now needs some dimensional paint to define and enhance the bare bones that I’ve created. I really enjoyed the fusion of fabric and paint. It reminds me of peacock feathers.
