This was one of those tangling occasions where I set off with no direction in mind, no plan as to what might end up on the tile.
It began as a test to see whether there was a compatibility problem with using my fine line pens over some new watercolours. I'd had some clogging problems when practicing, but think maybe I hadn't let the paint dry completely (I can tend to impatience!). The pens still complain a little over areas that include hints of the metallic paint - a bit of silver in this case - but not enough to even have to clean the nib. I was also trialing a newer smoother (and cheaper than my usual) watercolour paper - and apart from a slight wrinkling it did well. So equipment wise it was a success.
But even more satisfying was the look of the tile. It began as simple wash of a fairly bright green, with a few blue streaks and some silver on top. As I began tangling some Diva Dance I felt that was all that should be on the tile, with a few added Orbs. Very minimal shading but a bit of coloured pencil to accent the Orbs. And there you have it. Very relaxing to do and the pleasure shines through in the piece I think.
