With the theme “Gates” I went Asian…………using photos I had taken during visits to Beijing (China) and parts of Tokyo,Kobe (Japan)
These photos were printed on Gesso prepared Artist’ canvas and touched up with Ink Intense water colour pencils.
I found that I did not read the data base on Postmark’dArt correctly, and I fabricated too many “Gate themes”…
anyone want to do a swap?
With the theme of Petroglyphs/Rock Art………my thoughts turned to the north western area of Australia where I found examples to interpret.
I felt that I would not offend any one if I stayed with basic figures rather than the mythological figures of the Dreamtime.
Using “Xtravorganza” and Xpandpaint I built up “hand prints” and spirit people and gave them dimension by treating them with my trusty heat
Now it’s time to tackle the themes of “Landscape in one colour way” and “Water”, and then, maybe I can finally complete the quilting necessary to complete my “Firestorm” quilt.
