The Primitive Collection available only at www.christydekoning.etsy.com
Things got a little primitive at my place this week.
While playing and painting with my youngest son, I squeezed out just a little too much Duochrome Saguaro Green iridescent paint
(I love this stuff - shimmery gold green watercolour available exclusively from DanielSmith.com)
What's a girl to do?
Get messy, I say!
I had a sheet of hot pressed watercolour paper handy, and using a #4 round I just let the paint do what it wanted to. Loading up the brush with lots of juicy wet paint, I didn't worry about the end result, preferring to relax and let the brushstrokes do the talking.
What I ended up with was a pretty fun mix of primitive folk-art style creatures that I cut into ACEO cards.
Each one is numbered :
"Primitive #1 (the fish)
"Primitive #2" (turtle top left)
and "Primitive #4" (turtle top right)
A great exercise in loosening up. Try it!
