a little more cooking
the top pictures are another wonderful background i made using the "taking flight" inspiration.....so, here is my large canvas after a little more "cooking" and some collage....i have to say, if you are looking for some great inspiration and wonderful techniques- you need to have the book, "Taking Flight: Inspiration and Techniques to Give Your Creative Spirit Wings" by Kelly Rae Roberts. the book is one of the best i have bought in a long time. the techniques are not normally how i paint, but, i have had some really good backgrounds- (definite keepers-no gesso here) and have found the book/ techniques to be very refreshing.
