Thank gawd for gesso! This page started out completely different, colours, stencil, direction, everything. And I was stuck but good. So after days of dilly dallying and not being happy with it, I thought; bugger this, just gesso over and start again and BAM! done.
Goes to show when you try to force it, it never works, as soon as you loosen up a little and let it flow - bingo!!
