Today's inspiration challenge is from Mizue Hirano, a Japanese watercolor artist. I found her work to be both interesting and soothing. Here are some pieces that I found to be inspiring:
I love the colors and the way they all flow together.
Here is the result of my playing:
I took the inspiration pieces a bit literally. I also ran with the Japanese theme. Hence the Japanese stab binding and the sentiment (From Rubbernecker). I used Tim Holtz Distress Inks for watercolors. I used: Mustard Seed, Worn Lipstick, Fired Brick, Aged Mahogany, Dried Marigold and Spiced Marmalade. I thought it could use a bit of glimmer so I added a bit of Perfect Gold Perfect Pearls to my paint tray and highlighted some of the areas.
It is out of my usual pattern--for certain---but I had fun.
Hope you are having a fabulous fall weekend like we are having here!!
