A doll

Just another sketch to warm up a little bit. This time a doll. It’s a mixed media, mainly pen & ink, watercolor and fluid acrylics. Not sure yet whether I like this kind of mixed media or not.

I haven’t painted with watercolors in a while, so today I just made this small illustration. The photo is a little blurry, sorry for that. It’s watercolor, chinese white and gel pen.

“What Are Inchies?” or “The Little Seahorse”

January 20, 2008 § Leave a comment

Well, I’ve heard of inchies before. I knew them to be a certain patchwork style in which inch sized fabric squares of different colors were sewed together to a kind of mosaic. However what I did not know was that artists adopted this technique for creating little painted mosaics and collages. So I just had to try it out 🙂 .

For this one I cut out some inchies from a magazine (the only criteria has been that it had to have some green color somewhere), then I pasted nine of them on a larger piece of tinted paper. I tried to use some solvent on the pictures to bleach them a little bit, but it did not work out well for me. The negative space between some of the inchies reminded me of the shape of a seahorse, so I took a white gel pen and added the contours of the seahorse and some air bubbles. Et voilà!
