For Better or For Worse
Everyone, including me, thought that Lounging Tulip was somewhat limp. The flower lady painters suggested I place a border where the great expanse of foreground was. If you wish to know how it looked before please see my May 11th post.
Because I employed Annie's tulip stamp, it's gone from acrylic to mixed media. I got carried away with metallic copper paint in the border which made the rest of the painting look extra blueish, so I washed a thin glaze of copper over it. And then I simply couldn't help myself; I added the glass bead gel on top the border.
For better or for worse, it's now finished!
