Reflections - Work in Progress - Finished!!

Hi All,

Yayyyy!!! I finished it, what a relief!

When creating the water I laid down a layer each of Moss Green, Dark Green and Dark Umber. I then used Gamsol to blend the three layers into the tooth of the Suede. When doing this I use a bristle brush, load the brush with the Gamsol and then dab it on a paper towel before I start blending the three layers.

I then finished the reflection of the lion completely. Now that the under layers of the water is down and the reflection of the lion I start glazing Moss Green, Bronze and Artichoke over all the water and the lion. I then went in and added some blue and light reflections.

I then sprayed it with fixative. It's all ready to enter into the CPSA Exhibition..... lets keep our fingers crossed.

Here is a closeup of the upper part of the drawing.

I hope you enjoyed this work in progress and if you have any questions at all please let me know. And....... don't forget...... Keep Scribbling!! Gemma


  1. Oh Gemma! You would definitely have my vote! Good Luck!!

  2. Oh thank you Brenda.... I really appreciate that. Here's hoping.

  3. They will need at least one animal in the show or it will be out of balance, why not yours? It is so beautiful I can't see it not getting into the show.
    You have a very good chance of getting one of the high awards with this one.

    Big smiles!!!!

  4. Thank you Linda I really really appreciate your confidence in me!

  5. Great job Gemma. I especially like the water and the reflection. I am sure it will get CPSA acceptance! :-)
