\This week at ABC Wednesday, H is the letter of the week.
H is for Horse. The highlight of our yearly trip to Lake George, NY and Saratoga Springs is the visit to the racetrack in Saratoga. I was able to get a number of photos of horses - both living and in art.
Be sure to check here to see how others around the world faced the H challenge.
It is that time of the week to share our workspaces at "Stamping Ground". WOYWW is the weekly meme of Julia Dunnit, a place to share and meet other artists.
Using the horse as inspiration, I did some sketching this week. I hope to do a full canvas of one of these, but I do need more practice. This will be a September challenge for myself.
Shopping today, I discovered a lovely felt leaf placemat that I thought would work well on the gelli plate. I haven't used it for a while so thought I'd play with creating some backgrounds. .But the plate seems to be losing some of its properties and paint was hard to spread.
Here's a look at my art table with the placemat to the left.
After creating a number of papers, only one really showed the leaves:
It may be the placemat is too absorbent or I need a new gelli plate. But it was fun to just experiment and play with paint for a while. Haven't done that all summer!
