Inchy challenge

Here is my “asian” inchy for the Inchy By Inch challenge this week:

asianinchyThis is a bit of chipboard that also has a thin layer of painted styrofoam that I incised with a ballpoint pen.  The flower is from the Inkadinkado “Asian by Design” series and colored in with jelly pen.  I then added Liquid Pearls (Ranger) in baby blue.  My scanner has difficulty with the shiny stuff, so it is a bit burnt out.  Thanks for looking!

Gouache

Yesterday I went back to work.  One of the things I do is paint with seniors.  This is what  I did while side-by-side painting with a woman in her 90’s.  It’s simple and sketchy.  I usually paint abstractly, but somehow the flowers and curtain made their way in.

These are a bit more like what I usually do, though neither feels like a finished piece.  Perhaps they will get put into a collage or used as a background….
