watercolor on 4 x 5 inch tinted parchment textured card stock
This weeks challenge at I am the Diva is to think outside the toolbox, or use new tools you generally don't use when creating tiles, anything from a different drawing tool to different paper, on a rock, a stick in sand or even a sewing machine (I like this one and may try it later).
My usual tools are Micron pens, Rapidograph pens, graphite or grey Prismacolor markers for shading on either bristol vellum tiles or my sketchbook. I've had this little field watercolor set for 20+ years (I only recently pulled it out of premature retirement since art school) and just bought a waterbrush (it has a water reservoir). I've only used it for background washes in my sketchbook and other painterly projects.
Better late than never is last week's That's New to Me challenge~ S patterns. I spent so much time looking at and playing with different patterns I never got around to creating an actual tile. This is the sampler from my sketch book. I used the pattern "Struzzle" as the string. These are all new patterns for me. I'm a little OCD.
