One Potato, Two Potato...
Talk about bringing back memories! Potato printing seemed so easy when I was 6 and uninhibited.
Here's a closer view, and although it isn't perfect, I do like the darker outline on some of the images.
Here, I applied a wash to the background, still following Gina's wonderful lessons. I'm so thankful for her seemingly one on one tutorial.
In this image, I applied some gold oil crayon to some of the outlines. I like the look of this.
Good grief....knowing when to stop is one of the hallmarks of a good artist. In the above image, you can see that my work became a bit heavy handed. A little muddy on the left, and I just kept trying to improve the look....Thankfully, poor results only make me want to try harder.
