With anyone else but me 🙂 I love that Glenn Miller song. I loved making this image too, using the painting iron as a hot plate with the paper on top and “drawing” the melting wax onto the heated paper. Smoooooooooth.
I’m having so much fun using wax! I like to think this is a weird kind of moss that lives in books and eats ideas. This is beeswax, coloured wax and gold. On a side note … “Take THAT Theory of Landscape Painting book!” :p
“No buts! No son of mine is going to be seen with a Lindworm! Ugh, a Dragon without wings in the family? Out of the question!”
My 200th post! Thanks for reading 😀
This drawing reminds me of the sound of wet heather under walking boots *rustle* *crunch*
Only after finishing this painting did I realise that theres nowhere near enough branches on that tree. Its really just a giant stick masquerading as a tree.
I love jet trails, big puffy aeroplane foot prints. And when you see two jet trails that cross you can make a wish (that, I made up but I think you’re allowed to make up superstitions. Or else where would they come from?)
Heather is a seriously beautiful plant. I looked up Heather on Wikipedia and read that is is a “lime hating” plant. I thought “so heather can never have Mojitos” before I realised that it meant the soil classification, and also that plants do not order cocktails.
Dock leaf; mash it up and rub it where you got stung. I once rolled down a whole hill of nettles, in shorts and after that I always thought it was spelt “Doc” leaf, because it was like medicine. Bonus fact! The latin name for this family of plants is Rumex. How cool is that? I think Rumex is a scifi character waiting to happen.
