I didn’t like them at first, the Conservatory Collection was just a little too loud and garish.
Piñata Rich Gold, super opaque and made with real, shimmering, gold flakes plus, Adirondack Gold Metallic Mixatives, also opaque, have mixed them up a little :)
Dreamscape No. 575 was created with Conservatory Collection Adirondack Alcohol Inks plus Teakwood (from the Mariner Collection). The drop of gold in the sky is Adirondack Gold Metallic Mixative and the sprinkling of gold in the distant mountain and valley is Piñata Gold. I love the increased depth and sparkle from juxtaposing transparent inks with opaque, Metallic Mixatives.
Not as easily seen, but essential in creating the subtle texturing and varied edges along with carving back to the white of the paper in foreground is my newest and most favorite medium being incorporated into the Dreamscaping Process, Golden Acrylic Glazing Liquid.
Currently working on my 5th Alcohol Ink Dreamscaping DVD available late Sept. early Oct.. Preview Clip here soon incorporating two new alcohol Ink collections (Mariner and Conservatory), Metallic Mixatives and for starters, Golden Acrylic Glazing Liquid
Back soon with more exciting discoveries
from toning it down and mixing it up a little!
Above is one of my earlier Dreamscapes. No. 195 had a softly layered sky against clearly defined shapes, that someone said, looked like intestines…and then there were those other comments about hanging a vanilla wafer in the sky and a blob is not art…
Above is Dreamscape No. 564 born out of continued experimentation with new products, techniques and a playful spirit delighting in discovery. Oh, and let’s not forget the countless attempts that were tossed because I wondered if maybe they looked more like anatomy lessons and cookies than art… :D
Let’s Keep Dreaming And Doing What We Love :)
Talking about edge variety: smooth, blended, lost, fuzzy, hard, soft, sharp, fractured, ruffled, wiped…etc. You get the idea. Dreamscape No. 561, shown above, is all about edge variety. Click on it to enlarge and study all the different edges.
One of the characteristics of beginning work is all the edges are the same, usually hard and outlined. To add more visual interest…
Be a little edgy! Use a variety of innovative, interesting edges in your art. And if things get too intense, lose an edge now and then :)
Have fun experimenting today!
I asked them to choose their favorite creation during our workshop for this group photo. What I most love, besides the smiling faces, is everyone has a different Dreamscape, honoring our individuality!
These, nine very talented and creative women gave me energy and joy for two days as I shared the dreamscaping process. I was so happy my nine demos turned out and each person got to take one home as a reminder of our awesome time together!
Let’s Keep Dreaming :)
