This is a practice of the gesso and varnish technique. I just wanted to see what delightful wee textures I could get out of the quartet playing.
And this is the roof picture I have to do for an assignment at AUT. Just wanted to show two techniques together. The woodcutty look and the gesso and varnish.
This is a gesso and varnish style I particularly like: it gives a nice texture and you can rub back the colour or blend it on the paper. This one is based on a picture received recently from Dublin.
Ah, to be there among the craick again!
