Four seasons




You may remember a few weeks back I spent the day making citrasolv papers, to take a look at the process click HERE
Well,  the ink on the pages of the national geographic dissolves leaving wonderful patterns and it makes fabulous collage papers.

However sometimes you find a special piece.




A page much too special to tear up. The photo below is a special page.


 Although the colour was washed away, I loved the almost seascape feel to the page. 
I stuck it carefully to a wooden panel and began to paint over it using acrylic paints, intensifying areas I liked.


I love using metallic paints, so added lots of interference metallic colours.

it reminds me of a view out to sea on one of those days where it is sunny and raining all at once,

 Four seasons in one day....

Linking up to paint party friday
