Faces and Illustration

Hi, my dear friends, I'd like to share three drawings that I've done this week. The first one is for the #inktober inking. I used a ballpoint pen and watercolors to complete this drawing. It's fun to experiment and I am still trying to use different pens for this inking project.

The second piece was colored on 4.5" X 6.5" kraft paper using colored pencils and soft pastels.

To draw my third piece on kraft paper this week, I used colored pencils and oil pastels. 


I really enjoy these drawings and I am so happy at lease I completed something this week. Thank you for stopping by. Happy painting!

I just love the cool weather and falling leaves so much in this season, so I created another Autumn mixed media piece this week.

After applying Gesso on this canvas, I colored it with Izink inks. The leaves were colored with izink, too, and die cut with Sizzix Fall Foliage Thinlits Die. I then distressed the leaves with ColorBox black ink and Art Dauber. The image was stamped with Tim Holtz Simon Says Exclusive stamp and ColorBox black ink.

The Simon Says Stamp Small Chevron Stripes Wafer Dies were used to create the chevron pattern. 
Some Tim Holtz metal embellishments were colored with Distress Paints and attached on the canvas using Tombow glue and adhesives for more interest.

#Inktober and Face Illustration

Hello, friends, I'd like to share two #inktober WIP pieces with you this week. I really enjoy painting and inking, and wish I could have more time to finish these projects. 

On my projects, both girls have long hair and it really takes time to color it. They both live in the woods with their pet. ^_^

Inktober

These two drawings are created with mixed medias including inks, watercolors, Copic markers, and colored pencils on the 12" X 9" watercolor paper.

I hope you like my WIP pieces and thank you for stopping by my blog. Happy inking!
