Wine and Song VI

Number six in my current series featuring Wine and Song seems to have taken ages. For one thing it is a larger work on a Fredrix Watercolour Canvas, a surface that I have only used a couple of times before. I am thinking that I dont really like using this surface even though I am totally happy with this finished work. Building up any kind of glazing is a mammoth task as it is so easy to lift off the pigment already there. If I used this canvas more often perhaps I would work out its nuances but you know me I move on and flit from one surface type to another. Keeps me on my toes at least! This is an Olde Worlde look using a very old song The Chorister and my vintage look for this combines collage, watercolour,white gouache and inks. Next step - varnish

  1. Loving this mixed media vintage look Lorraine. The ephemera is fabulous. I like how you tied it all together with the vines. Fab colours too. I am exploring this style at the minute too but only for fun and just for me. Wishing you success with your lovely wine series.
