Nearly lost N
Just returned from the Iampeth conference and searched frantically for my letter N. It was the only one not properly adhered in my journal and I thought that I might have lost it along the way. But after rifling through all the luggage, loose papers, class samples and notes, I finally found it. This little N is 4"x2" and is done on Arches HP paper. I used Holbein Horizon blue on the letter and ribbon and Carmine and Alizarin crimson for the roses. The leaves are sap and leaf green. Background technique is pastel burnished with my favourite Diane Townsend Terrages pastels. They were great to pack along to Iampeth for very quick embellishments during demonstrations. Glad to be home. Hope to post the pics of my Iampeth studies very soon.
