I am truly enjoying art these days and I am so excited about one particular piece I finished this past Friday, my wreath filled with my favorite Bible verse, Psalms 9:1-4
This piece was created on Stathmore Mixed Media paper (9” x 12”) using a .01 Micron Pen, Caran d’Ache Neocolor II water soluble pastels, a dip pen and Windsor & Newton drawing ink. I am still working on hand lettering but each day I practice I will start to get better. Like anything new you learn, it takes time, practice and patience.
I am also participating in an Instagram challenge, hosted by Angela of ArtUplifted and Sandra of Tiny Sparrow Designs.
Week 1 Challenge: Lavender and James 1:17
Week 2 Challenge : Water Lily and Esphisians 2:8-9
I am also exploring drawing with my dip pen. I have always drawn my inked pieces with a Copic or MicronPen, so this process is fascinating me, so much so that I plan to continue.
I am also having fun learning to use my Caran d’Ache Neocolor II pastels and tried them our on watercolor paper for a bookmark.
I really love the depth of the colors!
Until next time, be creative!
