Where's the Bling? -sold!

"Poinsettia" watercolor (8" x 6")

Isn't this painting a festive one? Unfortunately, some things got lost in photography. With this piece, I tried something new..its called Iridescent Medium. It just a very fine wash of glitter to use mixed in your paint or on top of your watercolor washes. In person and up close, it looks very cool, sparkly, and actually a bit of "bling" to it....from a distance I think it gets washed out, and I certainly wasn't able to capture the "bling".... ah well, it was fun experimenting, and it is a great piece to have displayed on the fireplace mantle for the holiday.
