This Postcard has been a joy to do, especially after the last one. If is for June in Kansas, and I think it will be her first postcard. I even broke out my favourite technique and am very pleased with the result. Even thinking of doing a bigger picture of this one.
- Topic Sturt Desert Peas are another favourite wild flower, they grow in the desert, usually on our very red desert soil. They are a weird flower with their black centres so shiny, like they have been lacquered. June works in a green house so I think she will like the botanical theme.
- Technique This card has been done with both acrylic and colored pencils. I paint it first in acrylics using just the basic colours, then I add shading and depth with the coloured pencils. I love the depth of colour it gives you. The layering gives it vibrancy and saturated colour.
- Outcome Really happy with this card, it was quick and came out how I had visualised it. I don’t mind spending time on work, it is just so satisfying when it just works.
Well June I hope you enjoy Postcrossing as much as I have been.
