Finishing this door hanger challenged me. The background worked and I did not want to cover too much and yet 'keep-it-simple' is not my usual motto. The background is layers and washes of Golden's Pthalo Blue, Quinacridone Nickel Azo Gold and Black. I also dry brushed JoSonja Titan Buff over the layers and swiped the background with a Brilliance Galaxy Gold ink pad.
I have set my (long suffering) Dad off to look under shearing sheds for more rusty combs, along with the washers, valves, copper pipe and other treasures he regularly collects and donates to my art stash.
