Quite pleased with how these pretty little paintings have turned out – I stained four sheets of Khadi paper when I was making up my test page for the gilding paste. Now I’ve used them all up I think I’m gonna go stain a few more tonight. Love how they look with the little sparrows added in too. Painting them up made me really happy.
Trying them out photographed on a white background too – My goal for the next few weeks is to overhaul my Felt shop and freshen it up with better photos using D’s flash new camera lens; rather than my crap, taken all over the place current ones. Giving them all a clean uniform background should hopefully stop the pics from clashing so badly when put up on the page in thumbnail form – Like they do now.
So far I have managed page 1 of 4. Its slow going, but I think will be worth it when they’re all changed over. Clean and fresh seems like a good start for the year to me!
