Time off for good behavior

Shaking up my day this morning getting out of my little studio to meet up with a friend. It was perfect weather to be out and about today. I headed to a local cafe for a good cup of cafe mocha and to enjoy some engaging conversation. Afterwards I was inspired to create this little doodle.

Watercolor, marker and pencil on paper

During the creative process  sometime I don’t know what I will create this time I started with a blank page penciling a few random lines letting the image appear and just go for it.

 

Abundance

Plant your seed

Give it plenty of water, sun and love

Be patient

Watch it grow

Beauty emerges

 

Don’t forget to pack a lunch

A nutritious balanced meal mid day is a must to keep your energy up. For big and little monsters.. Have a fun day!

Let me take you on my journey, the process of creating this mixed media family portrait (caricature)   I began by using recycled material, in this case I used a composite board that was part of a frame, it is the base in which I build upon…

Lately I have been experimenting with cut paper, and other materials to mix up my creations, thanks to my participation in the 100 artworks challenge,

Using my composite board as base, and a beach theme, my background consists of various patterns, colors and shapes. My art drug of choice Mod  Podge (matte medium and glossy) to adhere the paper to the board and also coat everything when completed.

After the background is in place, rough sketches were made for the  portrait rendering.  Played around with the cut sketches to figure out my placement and size. When satisfied with the look, I transferred the drawing onto watercolor paper (Canson cold press 140lbs) painted with (Rowney) Watercolor and black marker was used to render the portraits.

When the watercolor portraits were completed, I cut out each person to adhere individually to the board. Some finishing touches were added, cut paper birds, surf board and use of metallic marker. Final step, coating the entire board with matte medium Mod Podge including a coat of a glossy finish for the surf board and just the ocean area.
