Thanks for hosting Scatty! :thumbsup:

This is newspaper and unbleached tissue paper attached with mod podge to watercolor paper.

No pre-drawing with pencil, I went straight in with ink. Added watercolor and tried to to make the flowers look like they're from the poppy family. More ink and done.

11 x 15 on 140lb watercolor paper.
A bit under 2 hours.

This is lovely, I like the composition and the newspaper is a really interesting layer. I think it all works well :)

While I don't exactly understand the process (maybe I'll learn it some day!), I love the effect! Lovely interpretation of the subject!

I love mix media and this is cool...I like the background and the accents the purples create.

Good job Valri. Brave of you to go directly in with ink. It worked well. Interesting paint and color patterns too.

A lot to like here, those beautiful colours and confident line work. Reminds me of silk painting, lovely.

I LOVE how the beautiful flowers cascade down from the rim of the subtly suggested hat - looking at it reminded me of the delightful tinkling sound of Chinese glass wind chimes. So beautiful !!

Clever girl!
So pretty that b/g, colour and flowers - would make a rather nice silk painting - or fabric.:)
