Day 5 - This started out as something COMPLETELY different ... a totally different image for which I made a frame filled with self-levelling gel (which I still have but will use for something else) but I didn't like the background colours - too washed out. So I switched to the above image. The original colours I used were Quin Crimson and Pthalo Blue, I created a grid with sharpie but the whole thinga was so far from what I was looking for that I added some Pthalo Turquoise and white to "erase" what I had done. Now it was getting that urban grunge feel that worked with the image. I smudged on some Quin Burnt Orange - yes, with my finger! - I use'em a lot! And then added the pencil eraser dots. A bit of black here and there and DONE!
Day 6 - Blues and silvers for this one using an Iridescent Stainless Steel to give some subtle shimmer. I used a Pantone marker to emphasize the horizontal lines but mucked it up around the image. This happens often and always allows for some seredipitous accidents to occur! In this case the pencil eraser silver ink dots ... then I felt the need to connect'em! Used a drafting curve with micro pen for the swoopy lines. And smudged in some darker turquoise as a secondary focal point to the right of the image, giving the whole balance and a bit more depth I think. This one is very textural and kinda begs you to run your finger over it!
Have a good day y'all
