Click on the picture to see the texture of the tissue paper, and click again to increase the zoom to view it really close up.

    Yvette, I love it!!! I really do! Your woodland “Watercolour on Tissue Paper” is truly superb. Unfortunately it takes far too long for me to see an enlarged image on my elastic-band computer, but I love the whole picture, and especially the roots in the undergrowth,
    There are some very light yellow leaf splashes here and there: which yellow did you use, or is it really a gold paint in there?
    One of your best so far…

    Thank you very much for the comment I appreciate it. It was Gold Acrylic Ink splattered on top of the watercolour.

    Paul – stretch the elastic band to it’s limit! The super large image is fantastic. Well done Yvette – I was going to ask about the gold too!

    That’s really impressive Yvette. Did you do it all in one afternoon? I know you are getting pretty quick now. You have truly captured the essence of autumn, well done! Your experimentation is paying dividends.

      Yes Mike the first Autumn tree scene was done in a 2.5 hour stint with a 5 min cuppa break. The pressure was on to complete it so the group could see the finished picture and it was not copied from a resource just some inspirational images for colour. The second tree scene on tissue paper was also done in an afternoon class in Liskeard.
