Back in June 2021 I made a selection of postcards featuring odd-looking creatures.
I took a piece of light cardboard cut to size from a cereal or cracker box. Then I painted bands of color with acrylic paints. Then, I did some negative space drawing with India ink.
There are quite a few of these cards to show. I’ll do so over a few posts. Seeing the end product is better than explaining it in words. Take a look.
These ate so much fun!
Thank you. I am not sure where these creatures came from but I do know how much fun they are to make because I love the effect of the ink on the paint and the weird shapes the bamboo brush can come up with!
Wonderful! (as always) (k)
Thank you. There is something about how the ink puddles and runs on the acrylic paint that is intriguing to me. And of course the swishy bamboo brush!
My favorite brush.
I love the odd creatures – slightly spooky and quite mysterious!
Thank you. There is a level of unpredictability with the way the paint and ink work together plus the swishy bamboo brush adds to the look, I think.
❤ these are very cool
Thank you. I like how the ink and the paint interact.
Your ‘odd creatures’ are enthralling. I find it fascinating how they materialise, no matter what medium you use
Thank you. You’re right, I do seem to call up these beings again and again and I am always glad to see them. !!!
