Foxgloves - Latest Work

About a month ago I began a series of three mixed media paintings. The subject is foxgloves, the wonderfully old-fashioned English cottage flower equally at home in the perennial border or herb garden.  Working from a sketch and photographs and using some favorite materials, this is what I created.

 I began by making a collage of old book pages, ledger paper and hand written notes. 

Over these papers I glued hand colored archival tissue papers.

Did the base drawing.
Added gouache on top of the drawing, more colored pencils, final fixative, two coats of matte acrylic varnish.
