1404 Marsh Marigold finished at last

Posted by Tina on May 08, 2014  /   Posted in Uncategorized

COMPLETED ‘MARSH MARIGOLD (Caltha palustris)’, but not without setbacks (see below). NOW BACK TO THE GRANDMAS’ PICNIC, UNLESS SOME OTHER WATER PLANTS COME OUT UNEXPECTEDLY!
Book picture: have started again. It took 3 hours to re-trace the drawing onto good paper! I am now ready to start painting again. I used a water colour pencil (different colours for different elements) on the back of the tracing so that the tracing would be very feint. However, upon pressing this onto the good paper I discovered the colour I had used for the stalks did not come out! So I have drawn these by hand with a paintbrush – my favourite way to draw. It looks a bit messy, but will easily be remedied during painting. I have now added a seed head as I am taking too long to paint the picture, I thought I would take advantage of an extra bit of information in the illustration.
