Mentorship Continued

 Final Sketch of Moonlight and Fireflies
Watercolor Applied
Been gone visiting our daughter and her family in Michigan. Weather was pretty dreary but we had a wonderful time. Continuing with the mentorship with Rebecca...the top image is the final sketch. I printed it out on Arches WC paper and applied watercolor in the second image (it's a photo so the colors are slightly skewed). I have now sealed it with acrylic matte medium and will start applying the oils on top of this.

Thank you for stopping by, unikorna. Appreciate your comment.

So the watercolor is not quite "finished", but it has that airy quality that watercolor gives. Why does it need oils on top? Won't you lose that lovely translucence that would seem to match the mood of the image?

I think I'm going to be more excited when this is done than Dallas!

Vickie, Actually, the oils I'm applying are glazes so it keeps that transparent look of watercolors. That's the plan, at least.

Ce, I'll let you know when that momentous event occurs.:~}

Such detail and fantasy !
I am very impressed.
I now feel I would like to know the story behind it. If it was a book cover I would want to read the book. B.
