Wacky Wonderful Woman
I have been ill for a solid week (won't go into the particulars...too graghic!). Too sick to even want to pick up a pen or a brush. Just sit on the couch and stare at whatever is on TV. And that's only when I felt like getting out of bed!
Anyway, enough about that. But when you love lettering and art and you have zippo desire to be creative, that's bad.
When I finally felt like doing something, I picked up this piece that I had started the week previous. A bunch of us gals got together and one of the girls shared things she had been doing. She had been experimenting with dropping color into her letters. Don't know if you can see the "Z" that's right next to the glass, but that is what I started with. Then came all of the layers.
As all of you know, when working with watercolors, there is a lot of waiting while the layers dry before you continue to add more layers. I would add something and then wait. As I waited, ideas came as to what the next layer would be. I did not stop until I was satisfied with the whole.
This piece has watercolors, brush markers, parallel pens, and masking fluid (see the white "O").
The Wacky Wonderful Woman glass is a gift from a friend, and what I used while ill!! It made me feel better!
