Meandering M....marks Mid-way!!!
I can't believe this is half way through the alphabet and the first of July! Happy Canada Day! This year is going by so quickly but I am really enjoying the process of these letters. Looking forward to teaching them as a workshop towards the end of the year!
This one is larger than most of the others. 5 1/2 x 2 1/2 on Arches HP paper. I did both flat and raised gilding on this piece. The plum colour for the ribbon script letter was mixed with Rose Dore and Winsor Blue. The little flowers were painted with Sleeping Beauty Turquoise and Winsor Blue. I finally found a delicate pink Diane Townsend Terrages pastel and used it for the shadow effect of the ribbon.
