Tree on the Hill

Hello to you all and welcome to any newcomers to my little corner of the blogasphere.
For the last couple of weeks I've been replenishing some artwork that has happily sold. Two of the pieces I sold were bought as a pair. These were the last two from my 'Lone Trees' series of paintings.

 This pair of paintings were done using ink and water, a small amount of bleach and a few splatterings of salt.

I love using this technique but you have to be very careful with the bleach, I use a very watered down thin bleach and an old toothbrush to do the splattering.



(These frames are the same but look different colours in this picture)




 I have a couple more paintings from my 'Sold' list but I'll save them for my next post.

 I hope you can all pop over to Wendy's Blog and check out what the other crafters are up to.

 Take care and stay safe

  1. They're lovely - it reminds me a bit of the silk painting technique with rock salt. Very effective.

  2. Beautiful pictures - I love the ethereal quality about them. Not surprised at all that they were sold as a pair - they look lovely together.

  5. Love these Jan! Love this technique - did an art class a few years ago where we tried this but mine never turned out looking as amazing as this.

  6. Bleach!? Presumably that's for the 'white out' areas of your lovely pictures, very effective
