It's Friday already, which means it's time for Paint Party Friday,
hosted by Eva and Kristin. My piece is also meant for
Art Journal Journey, inspired by Autumn. I made a mixed media A3 page. The centre part has been made from digitally altered and combined photos. The background shows castle Avenue at sunset. The watchman is part of a photo taken recently in Kettwig, so I hope the folks there are not cross with me for giving their watchman an outing here! I digitally removed him from his background and put him here. The birds were add-ons, I changed the colour to gold to let their feathers sparkle in the evening sun. I used an overlay from Daisytrail. I painted around the picture using a mix of yellow, orange, ocker, green and black, and stamped into the paint while it was still wet. I used my second scratchy brush, Jill (the sister of Jack). The wonderful quote is from C.S. Lewis, best known for his Narnia books, although he wrote many other wonderful works of fiction as well as theological books.
This is Jill. She was recently VERY insulted when I showed Jack and left her standing in the brush pot, so this is my way of putting things right with her.
Here they are together, a wonderful, scratchy pair.
The weather has been good this week:
I love the rusty arches sculpture at the castle ruins:
Have a good day you all, take care,
and thanks a lot for coming by!
