Bluuuue Peacock

Happy Thanksgiving evening! Hope you all had a great one (if you celebrate it).  I'm here to share a mixed media canvas I just finished using lots of texture, glass bead gel and some rub n buff.  I've been dying to try that stuff but wasn't sure how so I just went for it and rubbed on the peaks of the texture.  I didn't want to overdo it so maybe next time I will add a touch more, or try a different color.  Inka Gold also seems like it would have a similar effect.  I also added some thread that matched the colors in the image, I'm starting to really like the way thread adds texture. Some embellishments and I was done.  This was so fun to paint.  I was experimenting with shadows and color variations but really just love this blue color silk glaze.  I've only had one art class ever so I am learning it all myself by trial and error. Lots of error! But the fun is in the experimenting! I was inspired by the inkido blog that requires the use of thread or string.  I'm also going to enter into Limor Webber's FB group for this month's challenge calling for us to create using a technique or idea that makes us nervous to use.  So for me it was the rub n buff and the attempt at painting shadows.  Thank you and have a great weekend!
