I believe every baby has at least one angel. This is a very special time.
I really love these backgrounds that I have been playing around with lately. They take about four steps. First I do a thin layer - with a lot of water - big blocks of color. Then a bit of a thicker layer - more blocks of color. Sometimes I do this again. I use a pretty big brush for the background. Then I mix the over layer - depending on what kind of colors I want in the painting but it is chalky and sort of gray - sometimes a gray green or a grey blue etc. I thin this with a lot lot lot of medium and brush loosely over the whole background. It ties it all together and the the blocks of color show through. I purposely don't brush over certain areas to give it an old distressed feel - esp the edges. I got the idea from some Renaissance paintings I was looking at where they have the chipping stone walls in the background.
