Watercolor portrait – Pam Carriker inspired

I wrote about Pam Carriker’s book here and also posted a video on YouTube about her book. Here is a face inspired by a drawing exercise I found in Pam Carriker’s book. I instantly felt I need to draw and paint something similar. Am scris despre cartea Pamelei Carriker aici si am postat si un video pe YouTube despre cartea ei. Aceasta fata este inspirata de un exercitiu de desen pe care l-am gasit in cartea Pamelei. Am simtit imediat ca trebuie sa desenez si sa pictez ceva similar. Just …

Space for journaling - by Cristina Parus @ creativemag.ro

Space for journaling

I have drawn and painted this face some time ago, but never posted about it. It’s a profile face I did from imagination, although it’s kind of realistic face. I tend to draw faces that get out of the paper borders and leave space for some other drawings or maybe journaling. This page was completed with this purpose in mind: to journal and share some thoughts. Although I haven’t filmed everything, below you can see the video making for this face. Am desenat si pictat aceasta …

Couple in love Mixed media by Cristina Parus @ creativemag.ro

Couple in love – mixed media page

Every love story has it’s own way of coming to life: just like this couple in my art journal. At first I only wanted to draw the girl, but then seemed so natural to draw the boy behind her. And not in any pose, but kissing her neck!    Fiecare poveste de dragoste are propriul sau mod de a se manifesta: la fel ca si cuplul asta la mine in jurnal. La inceput am vrut sa desenez doar fata, dar in mod natural a aparut …

Mixed media redhead beauty

I love to mix all kind of art supplies and for me it seems easier to create a page this way. I don’t feel limited to using just one medium and I am free to reinvent my art all over again.

Today I’m gonna show you a redhead that popped into my journal in the hot days of July. I created this cute little princess intuitively, with no plan ahead, and she just appeared in front of my eyes. And it may seem hard to paint like this, but once you get started and practice a little bit, it will come natural on you.

“In the mirror” mixed media girl – Gratitude

I had this girl waiting for a long time in my spiral bound art journal, but today it’s time to post her on the blog. This girl has a mirrored image on the other page of the journal because when I drew her I’ve used a pastel pencil. Next day I opened the journal, I’ve discovered that there were two girls, meaning one and the same, but…in the mirror!
