DIY: The Sketching Begins

Moving beyond white, I’ve applied two coats of colour to the pieces and I’m now beginning to create the art.  I thought I’d continue with the theme of this earlier painting that I’ve hung in my bedroom and incorporate the autumn leaves, as well as some mountain ash berries foliage and a couple of sparrows.  We’ll see how that goes.  I have begun to block in some areas for colour.  Because I’m using acrylic paints, I don’t want to apply yellow over a green or blue.  I find that yellow is very translucent and will not be pure unless applied to a white ground.

P1080135This is the fun part.  The first coat of base colour (a periwinkle or lavender blue) has been applied to the other vanity and I’m in the house drinking a glass of water before the project continues.
