In my sketchbook.

finished
acrylic inks, watercolor, graphite pencil and color pencil


my intention is to print these images on fabric to use as pillow tops.
click here to see the many stages of the piece on the top.
one of the wonderful things about our digital age 
is that i can have a working copy of these pieces at every stage of their development.
so i can go back and alter their outcome or even use those stages in
another piece altogether - like an art quilt.
in the case of these two sketchbook pieces i started with the same drawing.

just started.
i love how this one has a sort-of Mexican folk art feel to it.

graphite pencil, stamping using ink pads and pan pastels

the initial drawing is actually incorporated in the second piece above. 
but this is a tracing of it that i used to transfer the drawing.
so, this time i didn't actually transfer the drawing digitally.
i did it the old fashioned way.



Don't forget that you can click on the image for a larger view.

Thanks for stopping by!
