You won't believe this!!! Found the reason why I couldn't comment. I just had to enable "third party cookies" DUH!!!! Found the answer on blogger help forum!!!Now back to business. love those textures and your cute "caterpillar"Love the sweep of the color... done with credit card?
THANK YOU for your gracious and welcome persistence for all this time of roadblocks to your commenting. Glad you found the solution!The sweep of color came, I think (did this painting seems like forever ago), from sgrafitto at one point, then applying matte medium and sweeping through it with a rough brush, and finally highlighting the sweeps by coloring over them with pastels.
It was driving me bonkers!!!
Gorgeous work Dotty! The light, the composition, the scratchy lines, the wonderful centerpiece... love it all :)
Sheila: thank you, thank you, thank you, and thank you! One of the gifts of comments, from kind viewers such as yourself, and as you may have experienced yourself, is the invitation to revisit a piece; in so doing, with the particular comments in mind, I find I step right back into the whole body whole mind whole gut memory of creating the piece. I am grateful.
