These felt more playful to do than those on today's previous post. Again, 5"X 8", the usual mixed media with acrylic, oil pastel, charcoal. I started by tracing some large leaves just to establish some shapes. I colored in negative spaces with charcoal, then picked oil pastels at random to color in other areas. Gessoed over that, then just a lot of layering and scratching, applying and removing, pretty much losing the under-drawing, but it does show through in spots. I like these for their texture and subtlety and whimsy, and because I had fun painting them.
