small art 1.30.16

 I did this little paint sketch during my TWSO workshop session on Tuesday night. I find that when I keep my hands busy doing creative things, I can think through creative problems better. The paints used are Peerless Paint watercolour chips, the pad is the lovely Papier Canal square watercolour paper block.

 This fruit is called a Buddha’s Hand… I think if someone from our current day would have named it, it would have been called Cthulhu’s Maw.  Interesting fruit, though. Wonderfully fragrant, almost floral rather than citrus. I’ve yet to figure out what I’ll be doing with it, but I’ll figure it out.

small art 12.13.15

Such little time these days for art, even the small kind.  

I picked these inks up last week at Opus and finally got to experiment with them a little. Even the names of the inks are inspiring!

  
Brilliant, rich colour – these inks are wonderful!

  
I was able to make the first of several postcards that I want to send out to a few people in light of the holidays. I of course added a good swath of mica loaded sparkly watercolour paint as well. ‘Tis the season, after all.
