Learning to mix it up!

My attempts at mixed media.... gouache,ink pen, watercolor pencils and watercolor.

This is actually the same picture cut up and/ or cropped. As usual i got carried away with the ink pen and it overpowered the painting so i cut it up and decided i could live with it. The process continues and i learn as i go.

flowers ...always flowers

This photo isn't the best. In this painting i was working on finding dark reds that were really dark but still read as red. Tricky business but fun none the less.
