The next letter in the Craft Barn Alpha Dictionary challenge is R. It just so happens that my latest in-progress masterpiece (yeah - right!) on my art course is all about resist techniques - so that had to be my word!
But, back to this little masterpiece! Started by masking off two areas with tape. I drew a daisy and used masking fluid on that, and also wrote the word resist in wax crayon (from a box of cheap children's crayons which I originally bought to try melting them - not very successfully I might add).
I then did a watercolour wash (wet in wet) with three colours. When dry, I rubbed off the masking fluid, and painted the daisy stem, leaves, flower centre and a few petal shadows.
At 5.30am this morning I was woken by rain lashing the windows. Couldn't get back to sleep, so wrote a haiku - as you do!
Flower fragile white
Facing the storm, bow your head
