This guy was inspired by an image of a penguin potentially made from ink blots. I did this guy with stuck on acrylic paint and a watercolor blend.
He is done on an 8 inch by 8 inch Kandhi paper (from India).
This was done in class today. That’s a happy penguin… This was done with ink and watercolors on rice paper.

Here are two different paintings that I did this weekend. My goal was to play with lighting. If you look at the Ross Sea penguin, he is emerging from darkness to light. The tulips are also trying to grab some of the light.
Tulips are so pretty but after a week, they don’t last as cut flowers. If you paint them, though, they become immortalized!
