Paint party

Abstract  autumn colors
Tempera color on watercolor paper A4 with additional frame in Photoshop
I did this for Rains Garden challenge. If you want to see the process go to the post before this one.
I made separate posts this week

Tree abstract
The circle in the center is a CD painted with Tempera colors with a grass brush. That kind of grass with fluffy seeds in the top. Quite fun experiment. But then Photoshop surprised me. I was about to make the "frame" black around the circle, but PS made some fill of the tree instead. I kept it because I like it, but can´t figure out HOW it happened so I am unable to recreate it 😞

Laundry, my Sunday morning activity

The wave
