MIXED MEDIA PAPER AND ACRYLIC STARTS



Stopped in at Michael's art store and picked up a pad of Strathmore Mixed Media paper.  It's heavy enough (400 series) to use acrylic and other things on it without it tearing.
















Made some acrylic starts - we'll see where these go and what they turn out to be later.

Sticking with a couple of colors and stamping on the paint while it's wet.  















Didn't see it until I posted it, but this has a wooded look to it.  Sunlight and spring light after a rainy day?



















A slightly creepy puppet/doll in my sketchbook.  I tend to doodle and sketch while watching t.v.



I ordered a pad of 500 Series Strathmore (even heavier paper to use with acrylics, inks, etc.) and a new small bottle of Pebeo Drawing gum as my bottle was getting awfully gummy.  It doesn't last forever but I really prefer to Pebeo drawing gum as it's thinner than other masking fluids/miskit.

You have the true creative spirit, Rhonda, and a great sense of humor!
Love the acrylic start (great color choice), your "unintended" woodland landscape & the "slightly creepy" sketch. Watching TV will do that to you :)

Okay, clowns and puppets creep me out but I love the other two pieces; the colors in the "spring" piece are so refreshing!

Thanks, Chris. And I LOVE your alcohol ink paintings = super!!! I was watching Gotham when I sketched this so the outfits and makeup does that to you!

Sorry Elizabeth, about the clows and puppets - this from a woman who likes vultures! Ha ha.

Jennifer Rose = Gotham and all their crazy characters :)
