Walking a different path



We walk through 
each day, with a 
restless wandering. 
Deep down craving 
a different path. 
A shining light. 
A dream to hold on to.” 
― Susan Bocinec Terry, Moods and Musings


 To start off Tag Tuesday for 2019 , our team leader, Valerie has chosen the theme "New Beginnings", so I decided to work with  a new technique and create a new "path" .... The background of this tag is watercolour paper, spattered with three colours of watered down  acrylic paint ( blue, yellow, red) . Leaves and garden debris had been placed over the paper, creating masks. The "path" was where a branch had been placed. The idea is when the paint has dried, patterns seem to emerge. Using ink and coloured pencils, I defined the image. Shadows and lines were created by smudging the ink and drawing with coloured pencils.

  Here are a couple of  images of the background without any work on it, and the beginnings of another little drawing  suggested by the background.
