Alcoho Inks/ "The Elusive Pedator"

I keep experimenting with the alcohol inks, it is a difficult medium to work with, the colors you paint are not always the colors that appear on the Yupo paper when you combined a blending solution.  So it's new but I'm getting the hang of it. It spreads so quick you must paint much faster than with watercolors..

DAY 29, 30 days of painting / 'BEACHED"

Another a alcohol Ink painting, this whelk shell was beached the day before yesterday.  When you see something this beautiful as an artist it just screams paint me~  It was another challenge for me with the inks but thought I would give it a go.   The colors are so vibrant and this is what I was looking for in the painting.  Can you feel the movement of the water as it forces the shell up tumbling, rolling, swirlling and gliding until it is beached.?     Enjoy!

Day 28, 30 days of painting! Watercolor/ " Rainbow Trout II "

This rainbow trout is a close copy of the other trout but with more detail.  I 'm trying to get a true color  with rich highlights of the trout with new watercolors I ordered.  They have more pigment in the color of the paint, which leaves the painting with a more realistic look.  As a young girl I would watch my father make these flies with bright green and red colors this fly was painted from a memory from my childhood.

Day 15 Mini Watercolor 30 in 30 days painting " TOM TURKEY"

This is one Ugly bird,  I was laughing at this crazy bird while painting him.  I must say his features are not that attractive.  He just caught my eye, and thought how many artist paint this ugly bird.  Now I'm a lover of birds but this one is not pretty.  The Caruncle, is the red part and when he is not happy it really turns bright red.  The Snood is the part that really gets me,the pointed hairy skin on top of his beak. Gobble...Gobble....
