What started off as experimenting with some bottles and jars of various mediums I had tucked away in the closet last night, finally took form.
Started off with numerous ink & metallic powder washes. Just trying to get texture.
This morning I picked up one of the results and started working watercolor and granulation medium into it as well, and the image started to emerge.
What I ended up being really happy with, that unfortunately you can't appreciate in a digital online reproduction, is the way the metallic powder integrated with the colors. The white in the sky was painted on top, so that has a flat tone, but at certain angles, the forest and trees glow with a golden texture.
