An experiment with markers, watercolor and Aquarelle water soluble pastels. A little more flowery than my normal work, but it happened any how.
Inspired by a road trip through the Kentucky countryside. I used oil pastels in my A4 Moleskine Watercolor Journal. http://journalingarts.wordpress.com/
First spread in abundance journal using an A4 Moleskine Watercolor Journal and a variety of mediums. http://www.journalingarts.wordpress.com
A water illustration done in one of my personal Moleskine Watercolor journals. Done with watercolor and a penciled word.
Watercolor and fountain pen in a Moleskine Watercolor Journal. The fountain pen was almost out of ink, so I diluted it. This caused the ink to fade as I drew the tips of the branches.
Watercolor done in an Moleskine A3 Watercolor Journal. Inked, skeletonized leaves were pressed into white ink for pop.
This watercolor was created in a Moleskine Watercolor journal a couple of year’s back. It was inspired by an old marker illustration I did in the 1980′s of a Clown Fish I bumped into on a dive trip. At one time, I wanted to create large 3-D pieces of undersea images and this illustration was a study of one of the fishes I intended to do.
A Water Lily in my backyard pond. Created in a Moleskine Watercolor Journal using Caran d’Ache Neocolor II Aquarelles and ink.
I created a pixelated abstract of my daughter running on the beach in a Large Moleskine Squared Reporter using colored pencils. I worked from a photograph and a Photoshopped image in which I reduced the resolution to be similar to the grid paper and for help with color selection. If you squint, you can get an idea of how the original looked.
