Misty Provence: The Scenic Papers

I don’t know if these lovely scenes are actually in Provence! But they fit quite well with the kit, I think. They started life as illustrated plates from a journal called Ackermann’s Repository, published in Regency England from 1809 to 1829. I found the scans HERE, in EK Duncan’s gallery. I see that she has added some more since I visited. I’ll be adding these to my collection! This is what the originals looked like…

I increased the size to 12×12″, reduced the opacity over a background texture in a colour from the Misty Provence palette, added lace at the top and damask to the water. Thanks, Eveyd, for a great find!

2014 in review

January 12, 2015

The stats helper monkeys prepared a 2014 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

The concert hall at the Sydney Opera House holds 2,700 people. This blog was viewed about 18,000 times in 2014. If it were a concert at Sydney Opera House, it would take about 7 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.
