Here is my piece for the Layers of colour challenge this week..."Summer Respite" I colour washed the board first then stamped flowers, leaves and stems. After that I knocked back the strong colours, and took away the sharpness by using chalks. Then I applied the lady, words and flowers. Summer respite, for me, is sitting out in the garden, so I have tried to echo this. Not much sitting out today though as it's pouring down and blowing a howling gale!
