Moleskine sketches and planning

Moleskinepage_wiredollprep_watermark

 

Sketches and mixed media planning for an art piece in my Moleskine. This piece is inspired by a doll/lamp in grav3yardgirl‘s latest antique hall video.

I mainly wanted to experiment with texture, collage and media that would reflect the condition and eerie charm of the doll and see what would work in the final piece.

I’m very much looking forward to starting this artwork.

Inktober #9

|Inktober #9|

Inspired by the beautiful stormy weather here in the UK at the moment.

With this piece I experimented with some acrylic ink layering in my Moleskine. The base layer is a printout of a book scan (the standard Moleskine sketchbook isn’t really designed to hold this much wet medium so this helps protect the pages underneath) and I mixed the ink together with water straight on to the page with the help of a sponge.

This has about 5 thin layers of mixed ink- each layer was left to dry in between. I then drew in the bottom form and the top clouds with black ink and finished with white ink pen lines.

New Artwork: Moleskine Pages

stories

Stories, acrylic ink, collage, cut text and pigment ink pen in Moleskine sketchbook.

Cut text reads:

That is the time of the year,

full of fog,

and little

consciousness.

I looked forward to tea,

and stories

in front of cheap

success.

Illustration Friday: Ocean

I did upload this yesterday but decided to take better photos of it in the light this morning rather than using the one I took last night with a camera flash.

My piece for this week’s Illustration Friday. The topic this week being Ocean I decided to create something below the ocean waves, resting on the seabed.

This is in my Moleskine, created with an ink base and dry pastel layered over this. I also went back in with a tiny brush and black acrylic ink to add a few details.
