The Key to Happiness...

Life Book 2013 Week 29 is led by Danita.  Danita's theme is "Making Our Key To Freedom."  She uses watercolors and masking fluid.  I'm using a combo of watercolors, water soluble crayons, acrylic paint and ink.

draw rough sketch with pencil, wet paper and paint background...



I don't have masking fluid, so I try not to apply background over my figure drawing; cage, key and other elements drawn...

I'm not sure why I usually give my girls black hair (I'm blondish)...

I say it, now if I could only do it, I'd really be HAPPY!

I envy you your ability to write in such nice script, Pat. I hope you can learn to let go eventually.

Loved seeing your process. My daughter likes watercolors (she's 12), and I'm always trying to teach her to layer. I'll have to show her how you did this.

Gorgeous artwork, and sounds so therapeutic. Your picture is good advice for us all, but so hard to do!
Thanks for sharing.
