Artwork Description

This is the newest addition to my series of pen and ink "Fantasy Garden" paintings. I started this series back in 1998 and it's gradually been evolving as I add to it over the years. I enjoy drawing stylised plants often from cones, ferns, mosses and lichens and populating the "gardens" with creatures, some half-hidden among the plants. This one was completed a couple of days ago (July 2008).

These drawings are made using fine-nib technical pens on watercolour paper which I first mottle with acrylic ink's fun driping ink onto damp paper and watching it "bloom" or blowing the droplets with a straw.

This was created with pen and inks, then the fairy and bubbles picked out in white acrylic paint.

Thank you!!! Smile I forgot to add that I used white acrylic paint to pick out the fairy and bubbles, and that the painting measures 7 x 6 I needed a magnifying glass for some of the work.
