I decided today would be the day I prepared the paper.
First the India ink.
Next came the gel.
I've found if I put this down I can actually erase if I make a mistake. I sketch whatever I'm doing with a neutral coloured oil pastel so the pictures are usually big - I'm already wondering how I'm going to work so SMALL.
After the glaze it was time to measure - and that's when I found this!
Secret letters from one woman to the next. I can't look at them now as my hands are all mucky but I can't wait. Notes of encouragement and good will I'm sure!
Ana this is a marvelous experience, can't thank you enough for being the one to set it n motion!
My new canvas is sitting on the left next to a picture I have been working on off and on for awhile.
Quite a difference in size.
Four more days.
This will be interesting!
