Fingerlakes Farm Revisited

 Today I took an old painting out of the "archives" and collaged white tissue paper over the surface.  Then I did an ink drawing over the painting using a nib pen and dark brown acrylic ink.  The collaged tissue paper gives the painting a misty effect which I like.  The painting is  11" x 15" and is on 140 lb. Arches cold-pressed watercolor paper.

I like the effect, Barb. And a great way to recycle an old painting!

Thanks, Patty! There will be more of these, I guess - since I have a lot of paintings in the "archives!" (smile)
