ART ON WEDNESDAY

I think it was the talk of Arizona that sparked this landscape. 
 We loved the desert for its novelty.
Last month, I tried another fluid paint pour. 
 It looked liked this at the start...
...and dried like this. 
 It looked dull to me when it dried. 
 I just set it down and would think what I could do with it!
Yesterday, I found the little canvas and decided to transform it!
I used acrylic markers to color in the background
 to create lake rock shapes.  I framed in the rocks and left the sides of the canvas colored just for interest.
Now the 'rocks' looked more vibrant and less dull to me!
  I had such a relaxing time painting the shape by filling in the background and then shading each rock to give them dimension then adding shadows to ground them.
I sealed it with clear lacquer and now it is hanging on my wall! 
 I'm onto something very satisfying! 
What do you think?!

  8. Nice work on the rock painting! Aren't roadrunners fun to see? Arizona is sure different from Florida isn't it? Both are fun and interesting places to see.

  9. Now that was a brilliant fix. It looks great with the shadows. I feel like I could touch the rocks.
