This week's colours were Pink + pink + orange. Yesterday I had the house to myself. It was so quiet! The boys were at their dad's house and my BF was having a boys night in the city. I opted to have a night in. I had collected some catalogues from the local travel agent for the kid's home school work the day before. I had a look though some and saw heaps of beautiful photos of sunsets which gave me the idea to use it in my artwork. I tore them out and used them as the base.
I couldn't find my brayer so I spray painted the background white. It was too shiny and my orange and pale watercolours wouldn't "stick" so I had to repaint the background in acrylic with my 4yo's paint sponge. Then repainted in orange watercolours.
I scrounged my art drawers and found some fabric with orange and hot pink leaves and some hot pink feathers which I glued on. The next step was to draw and paint a hot pink and orange feather and details.
Last of all was to paint a timber frame in orange and hot pint and frame it!
