10min Challenge

Love the idea of restricting yourself to create art - you have to let go of those hang ups: Is it enough? Have I ruined it? Should I just go over that bit and add something else? Week 31 of Journal 52 with a prompt of 10 minute challenge was just what was needed!

To create this page I wanted to use a photograph I had taken of the bees in my Sea Holly plant, so I drew them as a quick sketch in soluble graphite and then added colour washes in watercolour, blending the graphite with the paint to create a kind of abstract page. I finished, just as the timer went off with a few spritzes of distress stain in twisted citron and peacock feathers. I would like to add more to it - but that's the fun of the time limit! ;-)
