LAST BRUSHO THIS YEAR

Yes, I am putting brusho away!  There's so much going on. I usually do my brusho at the art club because it is, or sorry, I am soooo messy, and it's our Christmas do today and then that's it til after New Year.  These two paintings I have concentrated on using bleach.  I sprinkled and sprayed the background colours on, covering the whole sheet of paper with colour and then picked out the white with bleach and added some darks.
Dark Stripes were just the background showing through.
This one is actually Sharon Whitley's December challenge, and is from a photograph by Gary Jones of the Ugly House in North Wales.  Just a note to Health and Safety, The snowman didn't suffer any harm from being covered in bleach!!!!!

  1. Your snow is beautiful and colorful, Santa Claus has perhaps no arm but a lovely face. With a wink, I am sure he's a joke man ;)

  5. Thank you everyone for your comments. I didn't realise the snowman had no arms, which he needs in order to blow his nose, so I will adjust that. And glad you like the zany zebra. Have a lovely week.

  9. You've created some very beautiful works with bold colors and unusual technique, which you apparently enjoy a lot. The zebra is fantastic emerging from this explosion of colors.
