Camellia Pour

This past week I decided to join in with a group of artists doing pours on WetCanvas. I had tried pours last year, but wasn't too happy with the results. I think I learned a lot from those. This took lots of layers of paint and LOTS of masking. I'm really happy with the way this came out. It's always a surprise to pull off the masking and see what is there. Negative painting came in handy too.

Jo - Thanks. It is something very different from what I normally do, but fun!

Joan, this is one of your best yet!! I am so impressed! Encore!!

Helen - Thanks. It was fun to do. I have another one to post.

Lin - Thanks so much!!! I've wanted to try pours again for a while. I'm glad WetCanvas was doing them. It gave me a bit more incentive.

Shevaun - Thank you! These are hard to do because you need room to do them where spilled paint won't matter. I'd love to do a larger one.
