OMG this page was beastly! It was one of those ones that just didn’t come together well – the sketch was fine & I was happy with the initial composition – but when it came to painting it in – it was just one of those things that the more I painted the worse it got! I was inspired by the lovely murky lavender grey/mauve/blues in these paper flowers I picked up somewhere & attempting to get over my ‘blue’ phobia – I thought I’d make a dark blue sky – it evolved into blue/black & ended up very black! This dear woman’s cloak has been green, blue, white, black AND purple trying to get a rubbed back, distressed look – I had about 3 gel transfers that didn’t work – the one that is on the moon is sort of there & sort of not – I JUST WANTED TO TURN THE PAGE OVER in the end – where as the page before, I wanted to keep adding to it – becaue I was really liking how it was looking. The door looks good! I used interference blue and pearl paint on the moon & that looks great. I haven’t used the interference paints on black before, but it really looks good – great colour for night scenes. ANYWAYS – turning the page – I am looking for a totally different inspiration today – but I think I will probably get back in my comfy corner & it will be a page with green on it!!! LOL!!!
