Flowers on Bamboo

Below is a drawing I did by hand with Derwent Inktense Pencils and Watercolor pencils on 9″ x 12″ watercolor paper.

After I finished the drawing, I thought it would be a fun page to color. So, I recreated the drawing in CoralDraw.  This version was created for letter size paper, therefore the flowers are spaces .75″ apart, instead of the 1″ spacing used on the hand drawing.

I created a black and white version that is available for download on my Coloring Page.

White Mandala on Black

For some time, I have been wanting to draw a white mandala on black paper.  I drew the grid for the mandala back in August.  Yesterday, I finished the mandala.  It may have taken more time to draw the grid than the mandala.  Probably not.

Inktense Experiment

Below is the result of my experiment with Derwent Inktense pencils.   These pencils work by adding color to the paper and applying water.  Once dry, the ink is permanent.  Watercolor pencils and paint you can remoisten.

The drawing was done of watercolor paper with Micron pens.

They are Finished

Yes, in August I poured these painting.  Yes, in November I finally pour resin over these paintings.  Now, they are ready to be hung or given away as gifts.  No, I am not giving them away.

I did not realize that this painting appears to flow towards the center, until I took a picture of it.
