Griffin & Bear Step 7

 Sorry ,it has been awhile since I posted but I have been busy with getting my house back in order after we had the interior painted. Then I had to get my flower gardens in order and protect them from the deer.
 Now back to finishing Griffin. Since Purple is Griffin's favorite color I decided to use it in the background. I also wanted to make the background fun not just my hallway wall ,where he was riding, I used Ultra Marine blue along with Alizarin to make the various shades of purple.
 While the background was wet I dropped in coarse sea salt and left it until the following day to remove the salt.  Over nite texture !
        Now I have to go back in and soften the edges and add some more detail to both Griffin & Bear.

  1. I've just discovered your blog and really love it! Great colours - they remind me of the sea round Guernsey...
