Vampire Lady

One of the interesting side effects of the way in which I create art these days – always short on time, often in multiple stages, often while multi-tasking – is that it has become clear what my automatic go-to art supplies are.  The fact that I almost always reach for ink and watercolour tells me that that is my creative “home”.  I, therefore, think that I should focus my skills development on those media.  However, I still intend to dabble in other media because I don’t like being hemmed in or stuck in a creative rut.  However, it is probably good to know that ink and watercolour are my comfort zone.

I grabbed some time this weekend to play in my art journal.  I used last week’s Art Journal Adventure prompt which was the letter V.  I never really need much prodding to illustrate mythology and monsters so as soon as I saw V I thought Vampire.  I resisted my automatic impulse, which was to draw Nosferatu (my favourite vampire) yet again and to instead try something different so I decided to draw a glamorous, fin de siecle lady vampire.   I not only kept things simple with just ink and watercolour but I also simplified things by using just black and red.  I like that combination and notice it crops up a lot in my ink work.
