An evolving group of Australian Artists working collaboratively in our travelling art journals.
If you would like to join us please apply to join The Australian Art Swap Group on Facebook.We are a friendly and active art swap group who do a lot more than just art journals.
Firstly I would like to apologize for taking so long to blog about the journals I have worked in, so many technical difficulties.
But moving forward
The background was made with blue, turquoise and aqua India ink around the sketch of the mermaid. I then finished the mermaid and the seahorses using inktense pencils, I added sparkly ink for her tail.Finally I collaged the fish and quote.
I did a watercolour wash of the first silhoette.
I then worked out the placement of the second silhoette. I then darkened the first one with repeated washes. I used india ink for the second silhoette
I then did the background using indian ink, gesso and a Donna Downey stencil.
to finish it off I wrote a song lyric that inspired the whole page.
I enjoyed working in both journals, but not so much the blogging. Hopefully the next time I go to blog I wont have to deal with so many difficulties.
