TGIF: Burning Up

Burning Up by Karen Gadient, 2015

Bit of a different image for “FingerPaintingFriday”: watercolor and gouache, done with fingers and nails… but it’s two different scanned finger paintings, combined in Photoshop, with one of them color-reversed. I thought the effect was pretty darn cool and worth sharing.

Aside: I’m ruining my nails using them for finger painting (despite enjoying the effects―I love lines). I think I’ll be trying other ways to do it―including using gloves! So either you’ll be seeing scratch-less finger paintings from me next time or I’ll come up with different things for weekly prompts. Hm…

Enjoy your weekend, friends. 🙂

  1. Amazing lines in this along with some great color too.

  2. We are burning up… container garden is surviving however due to my getting up at 4:50 a.m to water. Believe it or not, it’s keeping me sane these days.

    • I feel your pain: our roses have been burning and we’re thinking of putting up some kind of canopy. Wow, getting up so early–that’d be hard for me. Do you get up and then go back to sleep? Glad the container garden is doing well (and you are too)!

  3. Beautiful and it looks like it was fun to create!

  4. Maybe something like this would help?

  5. That seems really appropriate for the end of this week. Beautiful. *hugs*

  6. Love it… I just posted a “Fire” of my own, and here I find yours. 🙂 Lovely.
