Taking Chances

Sometimes it pays to follow your instincts even when it stretches you beyond your comfort zone.

It started with the fish. I saw a photo of a really unusually colored fish and wanted to try and paint it. I combined materials that I hadn’t  put together before. I kept telling myself to be patient and go slow. Many layers later I had this.

To test whether the combination of materials could be replicated, I did the leopard. I have to say that I love the way the colors show up. 

I feel a series wanting to be born. Wonder where it will take me.

Inktober Day 4

Today’s prompt is “hungry”.  I couldn’t think of anything more representative than this.

I used sumi ink with a dip pen and paintbrush.  The shading was done with Elegant Writer calligraphy pen.
