trying some techniques i learned in carla's class using my own style. I have had fun doodling around.
this series of kids was started with some scribbly doodling i did on a program. i have been trying a bunch of different combinations of paints and ink to test out the effect.
i am liking the kid-ness of it all. maybe i just don't like to make grown-up art.
the watercolor paper is gorgeous! I would definitely order it again. Fabriano hot press watercolor paper from dick blick.
the new pen i have been using is a Faber Castell PITT superfine black felt tip pen. it writes on pastel, acrylic, and watercolor beautifully without clogging up.
it is one of those cold october nights where the sleet is pelting the windows and i am feeling warm and snuggly inside. i plan to cook a tasty dinner, pop everyone in their jammies, then sit up late with some hot tea and my art papers to play.
