    Mostly Glitter

    Hi Libidee, Nice colors! : ) This looks a fun idea. Recently I got into glitter on another thread and I goofed off with tracing and stencils. But I thought it might be fun to do a more serious piece. This one is mostly glitter and palette knife, but I also used a little pencil for sketching and a little crayon. I was a sketch artist for years and did a little painting. Mostly my work was realism. Lately I have really got into abstracts and expressionism, though my favorite artists were impressionists. So I thought I would do an impressionistic piece using my newly discovered media fascination. No tracing or stencils. Nothing special though. Just a quick sketch of a simple landscape I did some time ago (from a photo...I think it was taken in Ireland?) and saved it because I did not know what to do with it. Okay, here is what I came up with.

    I haven't really used the Paint Roller for much beyond filling in large areas, so I decided I'd give it a try as the main tool for a change. Pretty much everything was done with the Paint Roller. I changed the paper grains here and there to get different textures and used the eraser to fade areas where needed. I cheated a bit with the grass though, because I couldn't taper the end with the roller (easily anyway), so I used the Felt Pen tool for that. Here is the result:

    Nothing is easy to the unwilling.
