Ammonites...



Geinspireerd door de ammonieten die ik zag in het Kristalmuseum in Borculo.
Dit onderwerp vroeg om verschillende technieken: ik heb een spons gebruikt, aquarelpotloodpoeder erop gestrooid gemaakt met een stukje schuurpapier, gespetterd, en bij de onderste ook een kaars gebruikt als vetkrijt, voor de witte delen.

Inspired by the ammonites I saw in the Crystal Museum in Borculo. 
This subject demanded several techniques: I used a sponge, I scattered powder of watercolour pencil made with a piece of sandpaper, I spattered, and with the one below I used a candle as a crayon, to make the white marks.

  6. I love these Ammonites Judy. A while ago I had an idea about using a candle as a crayon but, typical of me, I never got round to trying it. Having seen what a great job you made of the Ammonite maybe now I will. Great work. ;-)
