042716 – Chartreuse Swizzle drawing

042716-chartreuse-swizzle-drawing
I am starting a new cocktail – a Chartreuse Swizzle (suggested on Instagram by dagreb). I will ever drink this drink (due to pineapple mainly) but this color palette makes me happy. Nice to be using a green base for a change. It is even better becuase I get to make my first real pineapple cut paper.

042716-chartreuse-swizzle-colorsThe one issue I haven’t decided is what green to use as the base? I am not sure which green I should use. They are both happy greens – not not sure which way to go just yet. The one on the left is a great mint green (shows up poorly here). This indecision coupled with my studio being FREEZING – I didn’t get a lot done today.

Another day – another cocktail. The original is on the left and the print is on the right. The art is the same size (the print isn’t flat). The original backing paper is a little more yellow than the watercolor paper for the print. The detail really comes through on this!

Prints will be $30 (+shipping) and I am accepting pre-orders. These will be a limited run of each cocktail print available.

041716 – White Crested Turaco

041716-white-crest-turaco

{click for larger version} This is a bigger bird – so it means a bigger artwork. This was a lot of feather work. Though I just love his crest – he seems to me like he would be a crotchety old punk – who wouldn’t give back freebees if they landed in his yard. I think him and me would be friends! Check out the larger image to see all the details. Even the larger image doesn’t show the big picture with the detail work – so I’ve included some closeup detail shots as well. Almost every scrap of paper that makes up this bird has been texturized.
