A Little Bit More for WOYWW

I just thought I would post an update on my 'fairy lustre' piece which I started last week. For reasons already mentioned in previous posts it is a slow process but this is how it looks at the moment.

There is more work to do on the stylized tree. I plan on adding more vines which were created with an acrylic stamp and black ink and for the circles I used acrylic paint and a cork from a bottle of Cava.

Since the last picture, featured in my last post, I have added a layer of Lumiere paint to the background which hasn't showed up very well in this picture. It needs more work to give that lustre effect I am looking for.
I am planning on a winged figure as the focus of the piece but can't decide whether to draw her with my non-dominant hand or to take the easy option of using  an altered collage image.

Time will tell........ x


  1. Ohhh, I love it already! Yes, wings will be perfect. I love everything with wings. Well, except wasps. Happy fuzzy WOYWW to you! Wendy #94

  2. Beautiful piece - can't wait to see what you do with it next!! Winged figure is a definite YES - would be perfect!!
    Happy WOYWW

  3. I like the way you are stylising the tree. How ingenious to use a cava cork :) and you get to drink it first! Result!!

  4. Oh it's looking great already...I love that you are thinking forward enough to be actually taking time to consider your next moves.

  5. Looking fab already. Annette x

  6. Awesome, love the way this is shaping up. Happy WOYWW Cindy #72

  7. That's looking very interesting, especially the background and I'm sure it is more lustrous than it looks its really hard to get that in aphoto
    have fun finishing it

  8. Wow, for being incapacitated this is looking great! Why not try a non-dominant hand drawing on a separate piece of paper and if turns out well collage it on or transfer it onto this page….? Just thinkin’ out loud…….

  9. I think this will be a happy painting in the end in your journal ..can feel the great vibrant shine of the luminaire ...

    have fun with this page!

  10. I love the colours, it looks great already. Can't wait to see it finished. Pictures are often a slow process, I've taken over a year to do some of mine.
    Have a great week,

  11. Can't wait to see the finished page - it looks lovely already. Have a lovely week, Chris 53

  12. I don't think I could do anything with my non-dominant hand...not even scratch my own nose.

    I love the dainty fern leaves.

  13. I love seeing the process as this comes into fruition. I find it difficult to photograph anything shimmery or metallic. I am glad I have the paints so can imagine the lushness. I look forward to seeing more.
