In the home stretch in this journal, so I've been going through it and tweaking things here and there. The above page had some stencil paint remnant on it. I took a different stencil, the one I call fish scales, and added spray ink to the page. Shades of blue...my favorite. I then took a piece of "delicious" paper, aka deli paper, that my sister and I probably created on a vacation a couple of years ago using the Gelli plate. I have a nice stash of papers from that time...but I could always use more. I cut fish shapes out of it. The paper has wonderful colors and lots of metallic paint and it's semi-transparent. The fish came out great. The crab is a Maryland Blue Crab (is there any other kind???) and it was in my stash. I carefully cut it out and added some paint to it. So that's another page done...and I like it...
Here's another fish page I did today...I'm into fish...what can I say?
Water soluble crayons
Water Colors - Ink
Back during Memorial Day, I had painted a beach house scene and posted it here and the page opposite that was blank. Today I painted this weathervane fish. My mind is actually spinning with some kind of fish painting in mind...whether on watercolor paper or canvas...I just don't know yet. Fish are a great subject that come in myriads of color....endless options...maybe too many, which is why I'm still pondering the fish...
