Crocus {Mixed Media on Wood Block}

In Junelle Jacobsen’s Saturday Mornings class, this Saturday’s project was to do a bloom on a 2x4 wood block. I chose the crocus, because I LOVE the first blooms of spring, and I LOVE purple. I googled some crocus images and found one to sketch and then paint on the wood block. I don’t think I realized there are white crocuses!

This kind of project takes a lot of time for me. First, I’m so new at sketching, that it takes a long time to come up with something semi-acceptable. Then, on the wood block, there is tons of layering of papers and acrylic paints.
