This is very Addictive....

Hi Everyone....

I have moved to doing ink work on rough surface heavyweight watercolour paper...I just love the way it feels and the way the ink looks on the textured paper....I am also getting addicted to this paper because I can have three times the fun with each piece I am working on...

I create my black and white ink sketch...fun!
I create a digital piece with it....fun!
and I paint with watercolour ...triple the fun!

I have a series of 4 of these "Sweet Ladies" so far...the first one today is titled...." Cupcake Princess" crazy as it is to include cupcakes in my sketches I just let it all happen naturally...no pencil..just ink and no escapes...what I draw is what it is....I love her... she even has cute jewelry...

She will be joining my prints in my Etsy shop on my next shop update....

Have a great day and pop by tomorrow for the next one in the series....

Cheers,
Diana


This is the Digital one....
she is very crisp and fun






and this is my fun with watercolour....

these are great !! I love her little beauty mark...like Honey West (are you too young to remember her ??) thanks for stopping by to check on me....I haven't really pulled myself out of my funk yet....but I'm trying :)

Awesome Diana. Yeah, really, thick watercolor paper can be so versatile, and I really like how you took this illustration in several directions. It's amazing how far we can take our ideas sometimes. Excellent job !!

Kate said...

I am loving the watercolor versions best! The whimsy of the paint really goes so well with your fun drawings!!

Hi Diana!
OMG! These are beautiful!
You just drew her with no erasing? You are amazing!

I love all 3 versions. The watercolor is my favorite.

Thank you for the great suggestion to post the new pug cards in my Etsy shop. That made me feel really good and now they are there. :)

The t-shirt never got posted. I was so mad, I had it in on time and followed the rules and EVERYTHING! They put up my other one I submitted but it's totally lame, so it won't win. Oh Well, I don't really listen to rock music anyways!

Heather Robinson said...

Oh, is it tomorrow yet? I can't wait to see your next marvelous piece. You have such playfulness to your artwork and I find it so uplifting.

Ces said...

Wow! These are great. I like the idea that you can do three things. I have seen some watercolor works and I am always envious of them because I just stopped using the medium after I had difficulty with it many many years ago. I notice that they have watercolor pencils - that sounds like a lot of fun. Really I must concentrate on my oil medium and I must get into the groove. Money work is taking up so much of my time. :-( I miss oil painting. Thanks for the concern, I am fine, just awfully busy with work. :-) Have a great day Diana, you are always a source of smiles for me. Thanks.

Diana Evans said...

Mark said...

Alicia said...

neat to see these all together. I like them all but if I had to pick one I think I would pick the black and white one. very neat line work

rbaird said...

Look at you! Trying all these new things! How fun is that!!!

Fannie said...

Great, Diana. They are all wonderful. I especially like the watercolor.

"Let it all happen naturally..."--perfect statement. I'm trying to do that--working on it. You're my example.

nice work!!!!! ;)

Octavine Illustration said...

the watercolor is definitely my favorite (but i'm a stickler for the handmade....). she has so much vitality and expression. one can't help but smile when looking at her as she seems she is just having so much fun! beautiful job.~

Forever Young said...

the watercolour one is far more natural. both are fun though.

Diana Evans said...

thanks so much for popping by and leaving all the great notes...I love hearing from you...

I am impressed that most of you love the watercolour one...

I must do more of these...

Cheers,
Diana
