Splatters

 Hello there

I'm playing along with the new challenge over at CAS Mix Up

I'm so happy to see my friend Leslie has joined the lovely ladies on the team. I still love to play along whenever I can and who doesn't like splatters?

My little sketched goose just just happens to be a snow goose (sort of) so to her this is a lovely day (sentiment stamped and embossed) and I used distress inks for the background and also to paint her, along with a little watercolour paint

One of the colours I used was Peeled Paint and believe it or not, her hat and cape are green not yellow as the photo shows... I've no idea why that happens. 

The splatters are done with water, a Posca pen and acrylic white. 

It took me ages to sketch something that resembled what I had in my head and then I wondered how I was going to create the background without covering the sketch... Well, I traced it, cut out the shape and then drew around that onto masking paper, phew... It worked.

I hope you are having a lovely day

Stay safe

This is so delightful and you drew it, that is amazing. I love the softness of the inking and the way you have used water and then acrylic for your splatters as you have successfully given the image more depth. Thanks so much for taking the time to join us at CAS Mix Up this month xx

What a wonderful goose, Ros, wish I had time to sketch or rather try to! It is raining tonight and we were up like spring today, 75! One day cold and snow, the nest week raining and warm. Sending Hugs!

You create such evocative scenes, Ros and this one could have come straight from a children's picture book, Reminds me a bit of The Snowgoose by Paul Gallico. I love those soft colours splattery snow.
Hope you are keeping well.
Hugs
