Just an abstract page in the beginning of the year.
Another page inspired by January’s theme challenge, this one a more abstract interpretation.
Whenever I’m hanging out with friends and we’re having a few beers, I joke about my glass being ‘broken’ when it’s empty (with the implication that it needs to be fixed with the addition of more beer).
Our local Chinese restaurant. Recorded one fun evening together after tiring day of planning and brainstorming. We went to 3 places to get different food for each of us (cranky us) and got dessert in Turkish store. I used sepia ink, 2 Kuretake brushes and 3 languages: English, Chinese and Russian.
The last page from 2011, inspired by some fanciful false eyelashes I wore for a New Year’s party.
Little table scene with hydrangea. It grows on the side of the house and despite severe negligence keeps blooming and gives us joy. I used sepia ink and Kuretake pens for color. More stirred my emotions more color goes into drawings. Paradox.
Albany. For some reason scanner refuse to read blue in the sky the way I did it, so instead of frustration I decide to feel thankful that it works at all. My ink got yellower and blue Kuretake pens agreed to drizzle over the drawing. Used ink and Kuretake over hot pressed Arches pad. Strange paper behavior, resist washes, pretend to be blotter paper. Still searching for ink friendly perfect watercolor paper.
A little late now, but this was inspired thinking about the solstice and that the days would start getting longer again.
