Untitled, Portrait of a Lady with a Moth

Everything I’ve tried to paint or draw or sketch in the past week or so turned out like shit. I finally got something right last night with this mixed media piece for Eléonore. It’s primarily watercolor with colored pencil (mostly the moth) and ink. untitled

Strathmore Sketchbook Flip

I’ve filled my mixed media Strathmore sketchbook and thought I’d share a flip of its insides with you.

  • Media used includes a whole bunch of stuff including
  • Indian ink
  • Faber-Castell Gelatos
  • watercolors of different brands
  • Prismacolor colored pencils, markers and water-soluble pencils
  • Sharpies
  • Sakura Gelly Roll pens
  • cheap acrylics
  • charcoal in black and white
  • and some other stuff I’m probably forgetting 8D

Ruby and Scarlett

These ladies are a sketchbook study in ways to portray glitter. On the left, I used Prismacolor markers, white Indian ink, Prismacolor pencils, a colorless blender and watercolor. On the right, I just dumped actual glitter all over her! BAHAHA. Their faces turned out very similar but not quite the same, so I call them the red glitter sisters Ruby and Scarlett. ❤

Sketchbook Studies

These are some recent pages from my sketchbook: attempts to comprehend sheer fabric, lace, the anatomy of a face. I screwed the first woman’s face up and decided to save her lovely dress by dumping glitter on her head in the shape of a drizzling cloud. I don’t know.glitterface study study

Last but not least is this cute little guy: a poison dart frog who’ll make his way into some greeting cards and planner inserts soon. ❤poison dart frog
