The one thing I have discovered about taking classes with Jean Bernard is that "Baby, it ain't over 'til it's over". Each project goes through so many incarnations, and each look is a complete and total change from the one before... it's enough to leave one dizzy!
I spent yesterday painting. Dibs here... dabs there... My *intention* was to work in shades of blue over a silver base to give a pewter-y fantasy effect. Sigh... I simply couldn't keep my brush out of the gold paint. Or the gold microbeads. (I LOVE those little beggars!!) I learned that putting gold metallic and copper metallic paint side by side on the pallette and using them together makes an utterly rich and delicious blend. Topped off with a highlight of interference gold... well, as you can see, my "pewter" chair... isn't!
This is what I have so far. I am much more satisfied with it this morning than I was when I quit working last night. I'm not sure it's finished yet though. I guess I will just have to let it percolate for a while.
I really REALLY love the colors on the underside of the wings. So... what do you think? Is it finished?
