ATC 'Life'

I took this photo last night - maybe I should have waited for daylight.

Another ATC inspired by our walk by the sea yesterday.

On mountboard again, sponged blended colour background. Starting with pale blue, then yellow, then graduating down with dark and darker blues, yellow and then brown over that for the sand - and yes the sand was that colour yesterday - wet from the waves.

If the click the photo it will enlarge it to see more detail. The boy is a Paper Artsy mini stamp, and I coloured him in several layers of watercolours, and used flesh colour oil pastels for his face, arms, legs and feet - although it doesn't see to show up in the photo.

I use blogging to keep a visual record of what I have made - disasters and success - just to allowing me to see what worked, what didn't, and if I am improving or not.
