Sharp Things Everywhere!
I cannot seem to get cactus out of my head. I just love the prickly nature of the desert. I have been trying to capture that "prickliness" in my work. When I look at the Sonoran desert, I see it as one big vast sea of needles! Needles and sharp things everywhere! I have been scribing into the paint and that seems to capture the prickliness very well. I make a glaze using high gloss gel and paint with it using a brush. I then use an old jewelry tool to do the scribing.
Have a lovely long weekend all!
