Winter Erosion Bundle – Part 3


Welcome to part 3 of my Winter Erosion Bundle – the final part! Part 3 is very different to Part 1 and Part 2 – is has no rust and no blueberries! I used just dots of watercolour paint and sprinkles of pearl mica.


These papers were on the very outside of the erosion bundle. The watercolour paint gave the papers beautiful soft pastel tones…


The pearl mica gave a lovely sheen to the papers that catches the light…


Above is a close up view of the previous image.


I used tissue paper, deli paper and notebook paper, all of which absorbed colour very readily…



The lovely pastel tones blend and compliment each other beautifully…


Shimmering gold pearl mica with touches of vintage pink…


Blues, greens and turquoise – lagoon colours…


All the colours of the rainbow…


These papers have been carefully stored. I will use them in mixed media art as and when the right project comes along. These erosion bundles take time to produce, so it’s a good idea to build up a good supply of eroded, corroded, vintage papers well in advance!

A spring erosion bundle is in the planning stage…

Shades Of Blue

Colour Chart 2.jpg

This is another one of a series of colour charts I have done in a dedicated sketchbook. These are watercolours in shades of blue and turquoise mixed with Chinese White. I absolutely adore these colours and shades.

These charts are purely for my own reference – I find it useful to have a visual guide of how colours mix together. Sometimes the results are quite unexpected. Plus seeing lots of beautiful colours and shades on one page inspires me. And it’s a really fun thing to do… !
