the Painted Cup



the Painted Cup
8"x 10"

colored pencil & solvent







This solvent stuff with colored pencil is just way too much fun. I'm still experimenteing to see what it can do. This time I wanted more of a painterly effect than with the wine one. Basically that just means I didn't intentionally blend... of course this was looking really nice and painterly and I fussed a bit too much and lost some of the look I had. I plan on making a companion piece soon.

Love this, Nicole. It has a very ethereal quality to it. The green tones are beautiful too.

Nichole,
Beautiful! Since you lost your older posts, can you tell us again the name of the solvent you are using?

Thanks so much Linda!

Rhonda oops you are right. I'll just make a post about it.
