Day 97 Elizabeth

Back to working small – travel again!  This time I’ve made the backgrounds on the illustration board with washi tape. So much fun! After I put the tape down, I gave it an aged look with a wash of Quinacridone Nickel Azo Gold.

Travel forces me to work with whatever I can get my hands on. Good thing I leave a few artists markers in my purse, my travel bag, my parent’s place…. you get the picture. (Confession: I shed art supplies! 🙂 ) I also have a few watercolour pencils I keep in a travel case, along with a brush that will fit in my purse.

Elizabeth and her sisters that follow are from the turn of the century. I think about them as different decades. Elizabeth is the most Victorian of the bunch. Maybe it was inspired by the yellowed “pages” and text behind her?  What do you think?
