Second Attempt

The background was done the same as the turtle, but I took the time to add a lot more detail and remembered not to mask!

Messin' Around

"Turtle with Bubbles" Watercolor and Ink - Experimental

So, I'm doing a little watercolor focus, which, since I'm not very good at it, is very frustrating. I've been experimenting with textures and then layering pictures on top of them, sort of like these. This is on a full 8.5" 11" piece of paper, and the texture I used (layers of plastic wrap) didn't come out very intricate and interesting. And then when I was working on the turtle, everything was looking fine until I tried to use masking...and well, all the texturing I had done weakened the paper and I took some of the paper off with it :P
So then I added all of this ink nonsense with fancy art pens, and now, well, it's all too much for me to take in. It's certainly a different style for me, mostly because I do not have the kind of patience it takes to do this sort of thing. But I have been sitting around a lot. Anyhow, with this done, I'll try to continue on with more experiments.
