Day 51 of 100


Lovely day today. Seems fitting for the first day of the second half of this project.
I had an idea. I implemented several "techniques" discovered during the first 50 days. And the piece came out kinda sorta as I'd envisioned, only better.








Laid down a variegated wash first--liked using my round brush instead of the flat. Laid in plops of the same color, only less diluted, for "petals." Had some of the images continue "off the page." Used the rigger pretty loosely for delineations after.








I quite like the finished product, both the full picture and the closeups.
Wonderful feeling of having traveled quite a distance in these first 50+ days of this artistic challenge.
Thank you, Rowena, for gifting us with this idea.
