Happy Friday!

The dog days of summer are in full swing in Michigan. We have very high temps and humidity which make it difficult to spend much time outside. 

The art group has a show in September so I am preparing cards and pieces for that. 

I have been playing with a new set of paints - Paul Rubens Pearlescent Watercolors.(#paulrubens) (@paulrubensart) This set arrives in a lovely pink box with a pink chamois and a pink tin. The colors are so vibrant and glittery. There are yellows, pinks, greens, blues and other metallic colors. These work well on both black and white papers.

The leaf painting I did using my regular watercolors and added the Paul Rubens gold over the leaves

These were done just with the Pearlescent set. Love the shimmer and shine. 

I was also playing with masking fluid.

I have made a good dent on getting ready for the show.
