Entering this card into the Craft Stamper January challenge - Take a Stamp.
I'll be entering this card into Ryn's monthly challenge .
Sprinkle very little power onto the stamp then use a fine mister to add a some water - and stamp!
I do love the versatility of these watercolour paints, and the surprises of colour you get.
Now to a real artist! Saw the Late Turner exhibition at Tate Britain earlier this week. This exhibition encompasses works from the last sixteen years of Turner's life, from 1835 when he turned sixty.
It was a really windy day, and I think we needed an anchor line walking over Vauxhall Bridge, but at least we managed to dodge the rain!
I was really surprised at how many works were on show, and fell in love with quite a few of them, but there was one in particular that I would love hanging on my wall.
This is The Blue Rigi, Sunrise (1842). The distinctive profile of the Rigi mountain rising above Lake Lucerne in Switzerland became a favourite subject.
Not sure why this one over the many other watercolours, but ..... could be that it is blue!
Bought a couple of items, including a postcard of that painting .....
..... and a book - well, nothing wrong with ambition!
The exhibition closes on the 25th January; if you love Turner, I can recommend this as a good day out.
