Day 28

I spent a little time cutting some more stencils.  I now have a compass rose and some other boundary-related symbols, although none are used in today's painting.

I tried to make my own modeling paste, using talc, PVA glue and matt medium. It has created some lovely texture (the circles), but doesn't retain it's form as well as Golden modeling medium, which has marble in it.

It also doesn't store very well, I made this a couple of weeks ago and it is hardening in the jar I keep it in.

The script in the top left-hand corner is in silver acrylic pen, from some angles it looks darker and other angles it is almost white.

very nice, one of those paintings with so many different textures I want to touch the painting to feel them. but no touching the paintings! :p (always thought as a kid that the museum people would hit my hands if I tried to touch the work :p)

I remember the Kelvingrove before it was refurbished, seeing a child run up to a painting, slap her hands on it and kiss it. I don't think you can do it there any more!

I'm really loving how you use scrim. The darks that highlight it in this painting add depth. Of course the colors are wonderful. Congrats.

LOTS of fun colors!
I like how you experiment...I do that too!
P.S. (the nail polish is #310 Timeless by Revlon,
I have purchased it 2 times!)
