After all that purple oil paint, I decided to join in with the Different Strokes from Different Folks project at the last minute. I got out my watercolours again, and some Caran d'Ache crayons for texture, and had a go at those shadows. They didn't come out the way I was intending them to - the Grumbacher Indigo that I used for the darkest tones, doesn't like mixing with others, and it is very dark indeed! But I quite enjoyed the unexpected results. I think this has a slightly ominous feeling, with the plain blue background... is it water? Is it sky? Is it a light?
I loved looking at all the interpretations from all the artists taking part - some fabulous paintings!
