Jumping trout

As I was painting these 3 fish, the top trout seemed to jump at me and have a life of its own..Watercolours can truely be magical ! I used some gesso for the bubbles to enhance the textured effect of the background

Angel of patience

This angel is particularly strong and I feel it is waiting for something. Patience came  to mind as I was struggling to take a good picture of it so it was definitively a good name! I used a lot of texture in this painting and lines are a major element of design.

Angel of mixed media

I created a textured background for this angel and tried to glue bits of tin foil. . The problem with this type of painting is how to render the shiny effect with a camera. A possible solution is to hold the painting at a certain angle which allows the shiny medium to show through otherwise you get a very flat and disappointing result.
