Week Thirty-Seven in a snapshot 🙂
259 down, 106 to go…
Day 253 – Pencil Shaving Fairy
For today’s fairy I drew an outline in pencil on some cartridge paper. Then I drew over the outline in glue before pouring some pencil shavings from my pencil sharpener onto the glue. I shook off the excess shavings.
As you can see, some of the coloured lead dust from inside the pencil sharpener stuck to the outline more than the shavings…
Day 227 – Potato Stamp Fairy
Created by cutting the silhouette of the body and wings in two halves of a potato. I used watercolour paints on cartridge paper.
Day 180 – Cling Film Art Fairy
I have only just come across this technique – essentially just put dollops of various colours of paint onto some cartridge paper, cover the page with cling film and rub the colours together to mix.
I chose to use acrylic paint so that when I removed the cling film, the texture would remain.
I then drew the fairy onto the dried paint and cut the silhouette using scissors.
