I had – actually still have 😊 – a nice extended post about my newest image, Floating Butterfly 1, to go with yesterday’s post about pen and ink and an painting an original over that. But, as is often the case, it’s now past 6 pm, lol!
So a shorter post with the longer one still to come might be best for today.
I hope to offer a full length story of the development of this image, particularly my use of my own pen and ink image printed onto high grade watercolor paper to paint on with the additional purpose of hopefully creating a variety of originals off my original design 😊
I’ll also be uploading original digital variations of my painting, as I do many of my other originals from watercolors to acrylics to oils and even gouache.
Here’s a sample using their full-resolution preview tool if the artist has enabled that feature.
I have and I hope you’ll take a look 😊
And remember, the sample above is not full resolution on my site here, but is on Fine Art America.
Thanks so much everyone, I appreciate it!
Stay curious, and creative!
Stay well everyone!
ps – the delay past 6 with today’s post’s been for all good reasons, cardio class, groceries, wonderful home cooked lunch, walking with Sheila in rare mild sunshine here in Austin ❤️
