day 16 i did a quick couple of things, one of which was put some metallic copper paint thru a stencil and, while i wasn't thrilled with the effect i left it, knowing it's only a layer. i didn't get a photo of the detail that day.
day 17 i just did some drips of a bold blue
that seemed to help take my mind off the copper i wasn't thrilled about.
sunday, day 18 and monday, day 19 were pretty bad on my pain and exhaustion scale so i took a break from all activity, but today i am back to it!
i started blocking in my focal lily down in the right bottom corner and i etched an intention into white gesso;
the intention area is very stark white and will be toned down at a later date, i just wanted to use the thickness of the gesso to etch into. i suppose i could have tinted it with another color, but i think i'll like adding a color on top better than how it would have been had i mixed it.
i didn't like the above photo, so i wiped away what i could of the offending petal and created a dark blue 'lake' area around the whole lily and lower part of the painting.
hopefully i'm feeling better tomorrow... i'm ready to get things going!
