Last week’s Art Journal Adventure prompt was “4” with an additional challenge to use three or more media in the creation of the page. The obvious subject was the Four Elements and initially I resisted because it was so glaringly obvious. However, having just depicted a Flame Sprite in my Rainbow Art Journal, I liked the idea of creating an image of other elemental sprites so I decided to go with my first thought and see what developed on the page. I used micron pens, watercolour, and Inktense pencils in creating the illustration so I fulfilled the side challenge too. Time and other life limitations meant this page was a much quicker and simpler illustration than the Flame Sprite and the figures are simplified as a result. However, there is a germ of something in each of them that I might return to and nurture into a more detailed illustration at a later date.
Interesting. I really need to get back to watercolor without stamps.
It’s fun to just play around with watercolour and see what happens since it can be a little unpredictable.
I did study watercolor in college but that was along time ago. I;ll refresh someday.
I love these. Especially green lady. She looks like a beautiful fresh pea pod.
Thanks! I’m so glad my pod shape choice was clear.
What a fun illustration Laura. I love your curiosity to try new ideas.
Love it!! You have a pleasant/stylish way of conveying concepts clearly and simply!! Very good!!!
Thank you so much for that, Sue. I’m really touched by your comment.
