More Framed Paintings

Monday, June 13th, 2011

Hi there,

I remembered I have a few more paintings framed. These are the ones I usually take with me to display.

The Anemone is 12 x 18 inches framed, is after one from the Bourdichon Hours. It is watercolor and gouache on watercolor paper.

The Butterfly is 11 x 13 inches framed, is one I painted in a class given by Jennifer Richardson on how to paint butterflies. It was drawn from the actual pinned butterfly, and is gouache on typing paper. Since it is on typing paper, it will be staying with me permanently as it will erode quickly.

The Tiny Butterfly is 2 3/4 x 2 3/4 inches, and is after one from the Bourdichon Hours. It is animal skin vellum, gesso, 23.5 kt Gold Leaf, and loose pigments bound with egg yolk (hand mixed tempera paint). These are the more authentic materials for illuminated manuscripts, rather than modern paints and papers.

2010 Kingdon of Atenveldt Arts & Sciences Champion Scroll

Thursday, September 30th, 2010

Hi there,

Here’s the scan of the completed A&S Champion scroll that will go to the winner of the Kingdom Competition on Saturday.

It is animal skin vellum, gold leaf, modern gesso, modern inks and paints. I just didn’t have the time to use all authentic materials.

My hubby says it’s gorgeous and original, and he wants it. Too bad he didn’t enter the competition.

Photobucket

I have 2 more scrolls done. One will go out on Saturday as well, and the other will go out at the end of next month. I will post pics of those after they have gone out.

Enjoy!

Little Watercolor Paintings

Friday, June 18th, 2010

Hi there,

So, I took a little break from the ATCs, and the scroll I’m working on. My friend Anne and I had an art night on Tuesday this week. She wanted to learn how to do some watercolor painting using the salt technique. She did an excellent job for her very first time at it.

I got a little packet of 4 1/2 x 6 1/4 inch note cards, and we painted all of them. Here are the pics of the ones I made.
