Hello wonderful friends! A late post today due to too much fussing with notification emails here. If this message is brought to you by a wonky email, I’ll try again next time! 😉
I have been busy this week cleaning up the ol’ studio, so art making is temporarily on hold… as you can see, I’m sort of an art supply junkie, and I’m not neat about it! Oh my!
The studio is in my unfinished basement to keep the mess and any smells or fumes away from my parrot (I’m sure you will all meet him here soon…), so it’s not quite the kind of art space you’ll see in magazines or on Pinterest. I hope when I am done remodeling, it will at least provide hope and inspiration to others that are stuck in “unpretty” spaces. Finished pics and a tour will be posted soon!
In the meantime, I will share a cute bunny watercolor illustration I made during the holidays for my dear friends!
This little guy was sketched out and then colored with Kuretake Zig Real Brush Pens and Caran d’Ache Neocolor II crayons. I then drew cupcakes on watercolor paper, filled them in with the Kuretake markers (activated with water), cut them out and adhered them to the piece with gel medium. The cake plate was also pieced together in that manner. Black and white pen outlined the details, and Mr. Bunny then flew across the Atlantic to his new home.
- Caran d'Ache Classic Neocolor II Water-Soluble Pastels
- Kuretake Zig Clean Color Real Brush Pen (Watercolor brush markers)
- Fabriano Studio Hot Press 11 x 14 Watercolor Paper… Actually, this one may have been cold press, but I do like the hot press better!
- Graphite Pencils
- Uni-Ball Signo White Gel Pen
- Faber-Castell Pitt Pens
Have a happy mid-week everyone. Stay inspired and creative – see you soon!
