Having just returned from a fantastic 3 day retreat in Coventry run by Art Workshops I was keen to play with some ideas inspired by the amazing Nathalie Kalbach and Birgit Koopsen.
I worked in my large journal beginning with brayering colours, then Nathalies' foamies stamps, gradually building up a background.
The image is a photo of my dear uncles Len and Edgar. Edgar, on the right, is a happy and independent 92 year old and Len left us a couple of years ago.
I wanted to paint them in a happy place with happy colours and it just evolved naturally and I love it.
The paints are PaperArtsy frescos and the stamps at the top are Birgit's from Carabelle.
I am entering this into the Mixed Media Monthly challenge as the colour inspiration is bright.
Thanks for looking.
