Artwork – Holbein Gouache in a Hahnemühle Grey Book. Doodlewash Prompt: Cherry Blossom I was feeling rather unmotivated today, so I decided to just jump in and paint with out a reference photo or planning. It was also a bit of an experiment. One of the issues (so I’m told) with gouache is that itContinue reading “Cherry Blossoms”
Artwork – Daniel Smith watercolor in a Hahnemühle Cappuccino Book. Photo reference courtesy of jplenio on Pixabay. Doodlewash Prompt: Sunset The moment I saw the prompt sunset, I knew the exact photo reference that I wanted to paint, and I knew my Cappuccino sketchbook (review) had the paper I wanted to use. I used whiteContinue reading “Sunset in Fog”
Artwork – Daniel Smith watercolor in a Hahnemühle Cappuccino Book. Photo reference courtesy of ArtTower on Pixabay. Doodlewash Prompt: Cactus I love painting cactus and was eager to do this prompt, but I wanted to do something that didn’t scream ‘cactus’! ArtTower’s beautifully lighted reference photo fit the bill perfectly. The Cappuccino book has lovelyContinue reading “Cactus In Cappuccino”
In 2014, I joined a free year-long journal prompt group, Journal52, run by Chelle Stein. This was the art journal page that I did for the prompt of ‘Building Character’. She looks like a character, doesn’t she? Since I turned this into a tutorial, I thought this would be a good post for Sunday’s ‘older art’Continue reading “Toilet Paper Mache Tutorial”
Waiting for new birds, and I decided to paint one in acrylic over a background in my Stillman & Birn Zeta, that I did a year or two ago. I don’t remember how I did the background, though. Ah, for the memory of my youth – that I remember! I need a raven like OdinContinue reading “Raven about memory #Stillman&Birn #Zeta #ArtJournal”
Gellyroll over Acrylic in a handmade journal using Clairefontaine Kalligraphie paper. This paper has proven to up to just about anything.
The official Week 11 bird (as opposed to the birds I choose to keep the flow going) for the ’52 Weeks of Watercolour Birds’ event was Starling. I really wish I had some iridescent watercolors when painting birds like this. It’s almost impossible to capture that sheen Starlings have without them. This bird was paintedContinue reading “Starling-Week 11 of ’52 Weeks of Watercolour Birds’ #52WeeksOfWatercolourBirds #Watercolor #Lukas”
Mitsib doesn’t seem to be issuing the weekly challenges for ’52 Weeks of Watercolour Birds’ on a regular basis. I like to keep up the flow so I decided that I’ll paint a bird a week in the book I have designated for this challenge. I’ll incorporate her challenges as they come up, and decideContinue reading “Rainbow Finch #Watercolor #52WeeksOfWatercolourBirds #WatercolorBirds”
The last page of my Stillman & Birn Delta has picked up some smudges from previous works, so I decided to do a mixed media page. I have this neat wrapping paper full of dog breeds and words relating to dogs. I took a scrap of it and cut out a few pictures, gluing themContinue reading “Over 300 Words for Love #Stillman&Birn #Zentangle #ArtJournal”
