|Afternoon Rain on the Savannah|
This landscape came together rather quickly this afternoon. I tried two new techniques, at least new to me. First, yesterday I tried the CitraSolve on an old National Geographic magazine technique. If you have not tried this method for creating a background it is truly amazing. Here are some references to check out if you are interested.

Diana Trout has a great "how to" video on her blog http://dianatrout.typepad.com/blog/2010/08/fun-with-citrasolv.html
Gary Reef has a YouTube video on the process as well http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mSwaIorBluc&feature=related
Second, I tried a matte medium transfer. Once all was dry I added some watercolor and some gold glaze. You will also see some washi tape in the landscape.
