Journal-#25

I experimented with monochromatic colors on this spread.  I used Liquidtex deep magenta and red orange fluid acrylics along with some white.  At the beginning, the background was yellow and magenta and then I glued down some collage papers.  After that, more gesso.  I used some gold and orange watercolors to brighten the dullness of the white gesso.  I drew the basic sketch with a graphite pencil.  Then I painted over that with different shades of the two colors mixed with white.  More graphite at the end to accent the lines.  I know it probably needs more contrast and the angel has no shoulders  but I decided to leave it as it is.  🙂

    I love this journal spread. These to combination of colors are always pleasing together. Love the angel–she didn’t need the shoulders. She is wonderful as is.
