Wild Grasses

Experimenting with different textures. For the orange background I used a netting material that I bought at a fabric store and in the foreground I dribbled granulation medium over sepia ink. Colors are Daniel Smith's quinacridone burnt orange and prussian green and Winsor & Newton's raw sienna for the sky area. Size: 10" x 8". http://www.jeanlurssen.com/


Landscape Patterns

More experimenting with color and textures. I am pleased with this one. The colors worked out well together. I used Daniel Smith's perrylene violet, quinacridone gold and permanent brown (which is actually a very nice reddish color). For the trees I used burnt umber acrylic ink. When you experiment sometimes the colors don't quite work well together, or are too bright or dull or end up being muddy. I threw three in the trash before coming up with this one.
