Watercolour & Mosaic on Aquabord
These cheerful daisies were in full bloom in my borders last summer. I wanted to paint them as they are my Mothers favourite flowers and thought the painting would make a nice Christmas gift. This was an experimental piece. I had been toying with the idea of combining painting and mosaic and this is the result of the first experiment! I finished the painting but unfortunately ran out of time and didn’t get a chance to complete the mosaic section so I gave it to her unfinished Christmas day, then swiftly retrieved it again to carry on!
I’m relieved there are “no rules” in the 30 paintings in 30 days challenge! So I’m adapting it to the way I work, for now at least and this is how I spent my studio time today. I’m pleased with the combination and really enjoyed the process. Although, I may add some more glass, I haven’t decided if its finished just yet! Please visit my website to see more of my Mosaics
