Some art

I haven't been posting much. To be honest I'm trying to not be online so much and between updating Facebook with art and then posting it here... well... I'm leaving this blog out of the loop.

But... here's a little something I'm pleased with! I created this over a few days at a local restaurant here in Chiang Mai, Thailand. The people who work there (and own the restaurant) loved watching me create this piece.

Lamy Fountain Pen and ink - the water condensation off my iced coffee as water - and other inks in tiny squirt bottles mixed with water for added colour.

This entire piece has a silver sheen to it... it's gorgeous in person.

Tangle Me This! Sketchbook

Jenni Legate was worried about what she was going to do on the first page of her new Tangle Me This! Sketchbook. I'd say she definitely made a lovely choice! What a gorgeous piece - I can't wait to see what she creates on page two!

Lots of Art

I've been taking online art classes with Sketchbook Skool (I won't post a link cause they are updating the site so it's better for you to google it - it'll hopefully take you to the next site instead of the old one).

Anyway...

I'm loving these classes... Here's some art I've created recently:

CanTangle 2017

IF you are a CZT or you will become one before July 2017... consider signing up for this event.

This is the BEST value for you dollar.

It's held in Canada... great for Canadians but also really great for Americans since the exhange rate is in your favour.

Here's a link to the blog: https://cantangle.blogspot.ca

I made so many great friends at this event and was one of the many people who really wanted another CanTangle... I attended the first one in 2015... but unfortunately I won't be able to attend this next one. But I'm hoping to be at the one after that!

So... if you can... attend CanTangle 2017!

Again that blog posting is at https://cantangle.blogspot.ca/ and your coordinator for the event is Lisa Heron.

Lesson One of my new Art Class

This page is approx. 11" x 8.5" - landscape.

I started with a gold watercolour over the entire piece. When it was dry I added a mix of silver and purple acrylic paint.

Then... I drew with a .5 Copic Multiliner.

This is my pencil wrap (one of many) that holds my Faber-Castell coloured pencils. It was sitting on my bed.



My bed cover has a mandala on it... many mandalas actually. --- I used my new Lamy EF Fountain Pen with purple ink which is truly lovely to write with.

This is the first thing I've ever drawn that was supposed to look like something. My next assignment in my art class is to draw every day for a week. *gulp*... here goes!

Just a tangle...

I created this piece over the past couple of days. The paper was gifted to me by the lovely Debbie E. New CZT and because it's quite thin I wasn't sure what to do with it.

Well... one thing lead to another and... VOILA... a gorgeous shimmery piece. The shimmer is all Debbie. It was on the paper when it arrived.

I did this group of images to try to show off the shimmer.

I used pastels, coloured copic multiliners and gel pens in this piece.
