Messy watercolor profile face

To me, watercolor paintings seem pretty hard hard to complete, especially because I don’t care for the rules, but still I am working with watercolors which are transparent and need extra care when it comes to layering color. But I’m working in an art journal, so I’m not worrying too much. Pentru mine, pictatul in acuarela mi se pare destul de greu, in special pentru ca nu-mi pasa de reguli, dar totusi folosesc acuarela care e un mediu transparent si necesita mai multa atentie cand …

what are eyes for you - by Cristina Parus @ creativemag.ro

What are the eyes for you – mixed media journal page

I’ve drew this journal page in stages a while ago sometime last year. It started as a page where I was trying new handmade foam stamps and smudging acrylic paint left from working on other pages. You can really see the stave (stamp) showing through the acrylic.  Am desenat aceasta pagina pe bucatele, candva anul trecut. A inceput ca o pagina unde incercam noile mele stampile handmade din spuma si unde mazgaleam vopseaua acrilica ramasa de la alte pagini. Puteti vedea portativul (stampila) prin stratul …

Pare ca nu am folosit acrilice, dar la o privire mai atenta, veti vedea ca n-am folosit doar apa. De fapt, am folosit foarte putina apa, pentru ca am preferat sa las acrilicul alb sa “inmoaie” pigmentul culorilor acuarelabile. It looks like I’ve used only water and no acrylics at all, but if you look closer, you’ll see that I haven’t used just water. In fact, I’ve used very little water, as I wanted the white acrylic to be the one to “melt” the pigment …

Bine v-am gasit! Asa cum va spuneam ieri, astazi am incercat sa adaug apa! Imi pare rau ca n-am apucat sa fac o poza inainte sa adaug apa. Asa ati fi putut vedea cum a aratat schita de astazi inainte de acapata efectul asta usor “ciufulit”. Pentru a alterna un pic lucrurile, astazi am ales sa folosesc un creion neocolor II de la Caran d’ache, in culoarea violet. Creioanele neocolor au reactionat altfel la apa, hartia jurnalului pe care desenez nefiind speciala pentru acuarela. Rezultatul …

Abstract February journals – feb 6

Right after I’ve finished the yesterday’s sketch, I’ve started to sketch the one you see today. It’s hard to sketch just one once you see how beautiful these abstract sketches can be. but there’s no rule saying you have to sketch just one per day, isn’t it?  Imediat dupa ce am terminat schita de ieri, m-am apucat de cea pe care o vedeti astazi. E si greu sa te opresti la una singura o data ce vezi cat de frumos pot iesi aceste schite abstracte. …
