RainRose--OPEN


RainRose, by Mary Stebbins Taitt. Smudge Paint, a combination of rough and smooth digital smudge painting. Click image to view larger.

For Illustration Friday's "Open" Theme. (Check out everyone else's entries!)

And for Bearuh and her Grandfather.

This is a brand new painting, even though it resembles another I posted recently. I started absolutely from scratch and did it all over, doing the rapid smudge and then doing the fine smudging for the water droplets. The earlier version was very small, this one is 15 x 20, though I just printed it at 8.5 x 11. The water droplets were a new challenge for me and a lot of work. I studied photos of them.

The water droplets turned out great! I like how you added more of them, even on the leaves. Well done!
