Queen Anne's Lace

This is my latest piece, a combination of watercolor, ink, gouache and collage. I've had deep rich reds, browns and burgundies in my head for the last few days and just had to make them happen in paint! I built the color beginning with watercolor and ink and then adding glazes of watercolor to deepen the color. The lighter whites and light greens were created with gouache. Washing color over the collage of the flowers in the top left gave a really neat effect because the gel medium acts as a partial resist. There is some iridescent paint in this piece for added sparkle.
