I Love You!

"Gravitation is not responsible for people falling in love."
 ~ Albert Einstein

Here are some of the 30 paintings in 30 days tree series, in-progress shots for my eighth challenge. I've learned to work ahead a day, so this was actually what I did today - Day 4, but I'll be posting it as Day 5.   I've already got tomorrow's painting finished, photographed, blog post written and scheduled for the morning. It's a big load off my mind doing it that way.


I'm revisiting some of my trees on Yupo from my first challenge, back in January of 2013. I'm using masking fluid on some of these, and usually don't use it, but we'll be covering its use - among other things, in the 5th week of my fast approaching FUNdamentals of Alcohol Ink E-Course, so I wanted to experiment and have some fun with it.


Making a record of the colors that I used for future reference was achieved with  a photo of each one with a color recipe post-it note. If I remember, I'll also write it on the back, very lightly in pencil.


Here's the piece after the background was inked and the masking was removed. Check out my blog post here tomorrow to see the finished painting for Day 5 of this month's 30 paintings in 30 days, inspired by quotes about trees.

Thanks for stopping by and
Happy Creating!
