Pebbles & Leaves is my first artwork created on my Icarus Heated Painting Board. I have used a selection of wax based media on this piece including, Prismacolor Premier and Caran D’Ache wax based pencils. As I worked, I also used a pure wax blending stick made by Caran D’Ache which put a beautiful waxy sheen over the entire artwork. I enjoy painting in the negative normally when I am painting in watercolours, but saw the opportunity to use this method with this medium and technique. I did accentuate the colours of the leaves and pebbles compared to the image I was working from, but feel that the bright colours used work well with the grey tones of the pebbles. This artwork is mounted and framed and is ready to hang. Images and sizes of the framed painting to follow.
