"PLUM REFLECTIONS" 11" X 14" Pastel on panel SOLD


I did some some additional experimenting with plums photographed on foil. I used another piece of scrapbooking paper for the background. The foil picks up and disperses the patterns from the scrapbooking paper. Kind of cool! Thanks again to Carol Marine for mentioning this technique many months ago.

  5. Rhonda, thank you so much for writing. I really enjoyed working on it. I did a second one using different scrapbooking paper - kind of a spring green color - and the effect was so different.

  6. This is really cool, Carol! I love these colors together. I was trying to find Carol's post about this technique but wasn't able to. Do you remember about when it was so I can check it out?
    Thanks,

  7. Brenda, thank you. I went back into Carol's archives and found her description in her March 23, 2008 post. It's under her painting "Lemon Reflections." Have fun if you try this method!
