These are both from Laura's class. On the dragonfly piece I added some dark greens to cover up some of the texture at the bottom that was too busy. I think now the contrast is better and the main part-the dragonfly stands out better. I added some of my gestural writing in the background papers.
The second one was done on a wood panel. I finished the painted background and someone said they thought it was done. Can't decide what to do now...the little chips of paint are from some of the acrylic paint that had dried and quite unexpected!
