|Icicles by April M Rimpo
I've loved icicles as a child in New England when they grew from the gutters into long swords. Here in Maryland the icicles create amazing fringe on the plants and trees. The ice encapsulate berries and seed pods. Trees bend like they are bowing to Mother Nature.
Creating the delicate pale pastels of the ice while achieving the bold and varied colors of the leave led me to use a combination of watercolor and fluid acrylic. Combining these two media let me use their strengths to capture this icy scene.
Below are photographs that show a few of the steps along the way.
