i'm really pleased with the outcome of my figs & pomegranate
and slightly baffled at the same time...
i painted those under Roz's guidance following
old painting techniques (the name escape me right now... was is grisaille?)
i started painting in black and white, without any colours
until everything was in place;
only in the last layer
a coloured glaze is added on top.
at first it felt dull and confusing
and suddenly to my amazement it all fell into place!
and they match my Proteas!
