In painting the Forest Spirit I started from the original drawing I made during my 82 Nights project and transferred it to a larger paper. I have really enjoyed painting these in a larger size; it is such a good change of pace to work in color again after so long with just line drawings.
I created this image for a Hayao Miyazaki themed gallery show hosted in LA by 3tArts. It was painted on Fabriano paper with Ink and Watercolors. Approximate image size 6x10 inches, in a 12x14 inch frame.
The process for Butterfly with a Thousand Eyes was a fun and rewarding painting. I am happy to share some of the steps along the way:
I wanted to share some process from my painting Selkie. I am happy to be able to include this piece in my Kickstarter!
This project really started last July when my second child was born. I remembered the months immediately following my first born being particularly busy and having no time to make art. This time around I was determined to continue making art on a regular basis! So starting in October I began filling up a little moleskine book with little ink drawings.
The only time I had to work on this was while my boys were napping or late at night after they had been put to bed. It was a long but very rewarding process. And now I get to share it with you!
I have just launched a Kickstarter campaign to print all these little moments out into a book for others to enjoy! Please check it out to see if it is something that you might enjoy.
