Every artist dips his brush in his own soul, and paints his own nature into his pictures.

My Art Journal - July - Cockscomb and Zinnias
This is the same series of flowers that I started in June. I did this background in aquas and did a honeycomb stencil over it. The paints are acylics and I used a black pen and a white paint pen. I also experminted with carving into the Cockscomb with a rub-on stylus. It doesn't show much in my scan but the actual painting does look like it has depth so this is a technique that I will continue to experiment with.
