Art Every Day, 19 July 2017

Today, a fun watercolor of birds and bamboo on rice paper.  Controlling the water on this un-sized paper was the most difficult part of the effort.

Art Every Day, 18 July 2017

Summer is my favorite season.  I love the warm days and lots of sunshine.  Here in Montana, the sun is setting after 9 pm and the twilight lingers for a couple more hours.  The humidity is generally low and the weather is really comfortable.  I was inspired by the bright sun early in the day to showcase some weed leaves to make this little card.  The weathered wood surround is alcohol markers on bristol.

Art Every Day, 17 July 2017

My worktable gets messy very quickly, so today, another clean-off-the-mess collage card.  The background was done when I was playing with Tim Holtz Distress Oxides, which I then splattered with Daler Rowney FW Pearlescent inks.  The two irises were a lucky find in my scrap die-cuts box.

See you tomorrow!

Today, my work is this little black bird card.  The background is a mix of watercolors and gold mica powder.  The bird and his branch are sumi ink.  The bird's eye is covered with glossy accents.
