Finally Something New

I do have more new stuff in my latest art journal, but haven't been sufficiently motivated to photograph it. Sadly my scanner and the art journal spreads don't work too well together! That's what I get for using both pages and not studying up on my photography. This piece is so mixed media... I started with a watercolour wash for the background, used some "Radiant Rain" to see what would happen (not much, really. you can sorta see it in the tree trunks but it's reeeeeally subtle), added some fun papers in there and used one of the textured ones dipped in sepia ink to make the kinda-burned looking patch. The critters were drawn on pages from a Taiwanese textbook I found at Value Village. Outlines with sepia ink and dipping pen and extra colour from my Prismacolor pencils.

WoW! I love this piece, especially the close up of the blue snail-ish. The fine detail and the color
is amazing!! Radiant rain? That sounds very interesting.

This piece is so stunning. It's a feast for the eyes. I can hardly wait to see it in person!
