Hi everyone! :-)
So I bought some new materials for my mixed media art and I will be trying out new expressive work using lovely natural beeswax and damar resin which I think is beautiful.
Just trying to get the time to get started as I never seem to have enough hours in the day to do all that I want to do! I have also recently collecting beach finds like sea glass, nice stones, chaney, pottery chards, driftwood too as I love to unwind by going beachcombing for these items and intend to make some little crafts, small amount of jewellery, sea pictures etc., for selling as I have always loved doing this when I was a child and am enjoying re-kindling my love for this type of collecting.
I have to be careful though because I am inclined to love so many things  (love everything!) that I can get waylaid with so many ideas (my mind never stops!) that in the end I get very little done and am inclined to be a lot of 'talk' and not enough 'action'! LoL  :-) So I have to watch that!
Bought beautiful new acrylic inks and experimented with them - great fun ! And the colours are scrumptuous! I started off by laying down the colours - autumnal hues, and then added more and then mopped up some of the intensity and it came out like below so see what you think. I will probably put a few more colours down so it may not be finished yet! At any of these three stages this painting could have been a finished painting. The middle one seems to be the most popular one . Take a look and see what you think. :-)

I call it "Autumn Glory 1".....acrylic inks on watercolour paper....
