October... in progress

Now that October is here, I had a sudden urge to shake things up, paint something in orange, purple and black.  Those are not colors I normally work with, but it's all about doing something different.

I would not say I've been in a rut, because I haven't. But I have been working a lot lately on small to medium journal pages, working small, adding fine detail. So it was fun to grab a piece of larger watercolor paper, get out the sprays, stencils and paint, and just play.

I really like this. Not sure what will happen to it next. I've been practicing some big drippy words to go down one side, but not willing to commit that that just yet. Likewise, the piece of batik fabric is not attached, just laying on top for me to admire for now. (Yes, Gaye, I got that piece of fabric from your yard sale!)

Here are some close-ups, plus the tools I used.

Suddenly I want some halloween candy...

You know, I didn't think I would like that color combination but I love it. Keep the batik in. And love the bird. I just like everything about it.
