There's a couple of new things that I did on this piece. First of all I had the left over hand-painted papers from this other collage/painting that I did.
and then I put a black acrylic wash over it to tone it down--
And then another fairly new technique for me is what I did to make the sunflower. I drew it on , and then applied Golden's Light Molding Paste over it. I apply it with a palette knife--it just takes a little patience, but that's okay because that's my word for the year : )
