Trying new things.

Yesterday I started the grisaille process on a poppy painting.  Now for the glazing.

The coating on the gold leaf board is dry, ready for acrylic painting.

 I just finished reading Rethinking Acrylic by Patti Brady.  She inspired me to try many new techniques.  Not enough hours in the day!!

I often enjoy looking at photos in the National Geographic site and found several photos that looked like art to me.  I looked up the photographer and found he lives in Belgium.  He has only started photography three months ago and is 17 years old.  His name is Bart De Laeter.  Check him out!  His  photo of the center of an opium poppy inspired the grisaille experiment mentioned above.  Bart graciously agreed to being my muse on that one.
