Finished Spread: Space and Clusters

This is a spread that has been sitting quietly, half finished, in my art journal for about two months. The colors are great (pastel blues and greens paired with their more vibrant counterparts via india inks and transparent acrylics) but there is just something really off about the whole spread that kept me away.

Finished Spread "Internal Tide"

I've had a gorgeous mess of dried Bombay India ink sitting in my journal for five days, waiting to be transformed from colorful anarchy to repurposed chaos; today, I obliged. Working with the India ink was a lot different that my usual acrylics. The thin ink moved more freely than what I'm used to, creating organic shapes and colors, whereas my usual paint needs more guidance.

Finished Spreads: Week of 5/29-6/4

I've been on a roll this week at my desk: painting, drawing, gluing and more! It seemed like I was working in both art journals consistently for about 3 days, switching back and forth in order to allow paints and inks to dry. I've finished 3 spreads, started 2, and worked on 2 others, totaling in 7 different spreads in progress at one time! Today I am sharing just the 3 finished spreads, so as to not overwhelm you...or my camera. Enjoy!

Finished Spread: Printed Reminder

I still have the illness, but apparently that's good for my creativity as I have created a new spread from start to finish in a day! I love everything about this spread, except that it's in my private journal, which means that I won't be sharing with anyone in person. Luckily for you, I can show it off online!

WIP: Struggling With Portraits

Being an avid acrylic user, I love mixing paints for light and darker hues, and find it so much easier than perfecting shades with graphic or water color, however shading is still far easier than line work! It's still a work in progress, of course, but I'm at the point where things are starting to feel cohesive.
