Workshop with Judy Hirst - Lanchester Thursday Art Group

Painting on supplied paper and mount for a window size of 4.5 x 6 inches. Light weight paper which buckled on applying the first washes. The designs of Lindisfarne birds added using black and graphite pens and coloured.
I was not sure about using the gold leaf on the painting because last year's effort was a failure because I used the gold as a positive shape and if did not look right.
I decided to use the gold as a negative shape behind the birds which I think worked out ok.
Golden sands Lindisfarne
