Hello folks!

So I've been on a bit of a tea-dyed paper run, I'm loving that stuff for art! I dye the paper myself, and then use it in various ways. Here is the latest piece!



"Starchild" was sketched in and detailed with ink, then washed with watercolours and amped up with soft pastels and some white ink for highlights. I'm loving the way the purple compliments the tea tones!




Enjoy!

-D

With your talent, I doubt the mods will spank you. That is a wonderful piece. So free-form. And even a bit "racey".

Perhaps mods will request a tutorial, so the rest of us can learn to do these things  Grin
Or, you could just post one on your own thread, if you have time. I always love to see how these wonderful creations are made. I love the purple and tea, too. And your white hi-lights really set it off. Cute whiskers!

Another beautiful piece of art!
I love what you did with the colours and the stains.

You can link to other places, but not to places where you sell your work.
You can, however, link to places you sell in your forum signature.

As BeaG mentioned above, if there is any selling/talk of selling on another link it is not allowed within the body of your post but you are definitely free to add those links in your signature as you have done Smiley

I'm really liking your paintings on the tea dyed paper, I may have to splash around with my afternoon tea as well Smiley
