Orange has been the color of this weekend. Perhaps it is the beautiful weather that has stimulated me to use this bright color. For this card I mixed some orange paint, pressed a piece of wax paper into it, and daubed/pressed it onto the postcard. Some areas I applied it thickly and others I applied it thinly so you could see portions of the postcard coming through. I then switched to gesso. I started by painting on some gesso that I was going to wipe of to leave a thin layer. Oops! Too much so I grabbed a paper towel and wiped most of it away. But I then took the paper towel and began daubing the gesso over the orange. In some areas is mixed beautifully and softened the orange and the paper towel left a nice texture. I eventually worked my way up to the upper right and felt satisfied with the design. It feels a bit lacy to me or at least delicate and I like that airy feeling. The lightness of spring.
