They way these feathered friends and fantastic fungi appear on the paper, it is as though they were waiting for your hand to reveal them. See how they all have their attention on you, Geninne?

Oh, this turned out absolutely beautiful! The blues are really singing together with the oranges. And, like Candida mentions; it was nice seeing the process!

Like others mentioned, thank you for posting before and after of this piece. I learn so much from seeing the process. Thank you also for today's post (1993) because I have hope that in 20 years I'll be half as good as you :)

Curious what you use for the white lines under the tops of the mushrooms. do you use a ruler or do you freehand them. They seem so perfectly spaced. Muchas gracias por tu inspiración.
