Bejewelled Heart


Taking a time out from working on notes for an upcoming workshop to flourish a summer heart design. The background is done with a pastel burnish technique and the florals are painted with Winsor Newton Opera Rose, Carmine, Terre Verte and Holbein Lilac. After adding the accent strokes and gel pen, I decided to adhere some swarovski crystals in a Medium Sapphire colour. Finished size is 4"x4" on Fabriano Tiepolo paper.
