Here is a bright piece for a beautiful, sunny day. I started with some gesso that is sort of dried out and THICK. I coated the card with this and then painted vertical sections of yellow, orange and red watercolor. I textured the surface with some plastic and let it dry. I then applied some watery red watercolor and let it meander over the surface. Once that dry I painted over the resulting lines with gloss medium and added some glass bead medium to a few sections. I finished by adding some blue watercolor lightly to the glass bead areas. The glass beads light up when photographed which makes the photo interesting if not dead on accurate.
