{in the city – (work in progress)}

Last April, you might remember that I took a 3 day painting course at the Makerie with Flora Bowley. This started a whole new path for my art and for my return to sketching in my sketchbooks. I started a sketchbook during that class which is now filled with wonderful ideas for mixed media pieces. This is the first of a batch that I am creating on small art board panels (incidently, I learned about the panels from my friend Marisa as she does most of her work on them)

They are a perfect option for me, as I can complete a piece in one sitting and feel a true sense of accomplishment.

I used three tools to create this piece: 4×4 art board panel, xs pitt pen and acrylic paint. I also limited my color palette to 4 colors as you can see in the photo and white with iridescent silver for accent.

The piece now needs to be finished with matte medium and it will be ready for cards, postcards, prints etc.

Thanks for popping by today for a quick glimpse into my studio.

Have a great day everyone.
