Something new!

 Thanks to my neice Lexie and her husband Patrick, I've begun a career of map-making!  Actually they toured the Mosel River Valley and sampled a few bottles of wine.  They saved the lables and came up with the idea of a map with the labels to celebrate their trip.
 Much thanks to them - I have a few map ideas now that I must do. Hmmm...

Below is how the piece looked with its first color layer made up of yellow oxide, titanium white and pyrrole orange. (Peach)
Next is the color layer of burnt umber, pyrrole red and a touch of pthalo green to dull the red. (Rose)
 The last layer is a mixture of pthalo green and burnt umber. (Green)

I love this! I have been painting for a little over a year. I use your technique for texture in much of my work! My husbands joint compound is no longer sacred! I still have much to learn but I wanted to say thank you for sharing your knowledge. You are truly an inspiration! God bless you!

It's always fun to see your new projects - and for us non-artists it is easier to visualize when I can actually see it rather than hear about the project over a round of cards (and flying -5's of course)!

Thanks, Donna! Keep travelling on your art journey - all the best.

Hey Chris - Just wait for the Tioga County map! And there should be some mercy on the -5's soon!
