Challenge 27 - Duo aka-Dex is from Mars, Verdigogh from Venus

Dex plus Verdigogh = Double Trouble.  I think in this case opposites do not actually attract, more like co-exist. This was a difficult challenge for me as I rarely draw either of these tangles, however when one steps out of their comfort zone they are rewarded with some knowledge.  I learned a lot from this challenge and also had some fun in the process.  The background was painted first with water color  and left to thoroughly dry before I even started. No string was used, I just attacked the verdigogh  thinking it would be fun to have it radiate out from the center. Then used Dex as a background.  It was very hard for me to get the scale of the dex to be uniform. It was fun to play a little with adding color, so all in all I enjoyed this challenge.  Thanks Laura .
