Hope you all had a good weekend!
The new theme at AJJ is shadow and light, and here is my first offering, a mixed media piece.The background has been stamped, pasted with book strips and scrumpled up tissue paper, gessoed, and then I painted in the shadows in terracotta and grey. The figures have been added with stencils. I added in more colour with pastels in yellow, white and grey before adding the lettering. It did not turn out quite as I wanted it to, but it's okay- that's the difference between dream and reality!
These are photos I took on the way home from my walk yesterday, and illustrate the same theme. I love these dramatic shots with the looming black clouds and the sun lighting up the stage.
Have a great day, take care, and thanks for coming by!
