Pear cards - Painting and Stitching

I am continuing to paint onto the cards I recently purchased from Dick Blick.  They are Fabriano watercolour paper and are quite nice to paint onto.  I am repeating quite a lot of the same images (these are all my own photos) and am learning something new each time I paint one.  I am loving the learning and will carry on until I'm bored with these images and then see where it takes me.



At the same time, perhaps a bit of boredom creeping in here, I am painting onto silk organza and using some of the images that I had stitched earlier onto silk organza.



I have some more ideas that I am going play around with in the next few days based on these experiments in my sketchbook.  I'll show you those when I get them a bit more resolved.

And I am playing catch-up with the Liz Steel class.  We have had two weeks over the holidays to get caught up.  Apparently I need more than that!!! Oh well.  Catch as catch can!!  Here I am trying a little one- and two-point perspective.  One drawing from life and the other a pic from a photo.



And as usual, I'll be back!!
