Nine of My Heart

Posted by on March 18, 2010


This is the companion piece to the previous work posted, Heart is Home. It was created in much the same way: It is a collage done on Strathmore 500 bristol board, using an engraved illustrations from an old anatomy book. I also incorporated a playing card and a scrap of antique marbled paper. The frame around the heart the embossed and perforated edge from a very old holy card. The media used includes liquid acrylic inks, Derwent Inktense watercolor pencils, Prismacolor watercolor pencils, and metallic acrylic inks. The image is 5″ by 5″ square.

I have really become a fan of the Inktense watercolor pencils. The pigmentation is very highly concentrated, more so than any of the other watercolor pencils I have tried. If you enjoy working with watercolor pencils you should give them a try and let me know what you think.

    Beautiful work! I’ve just recently discovered your work via flickr (looking up moleskine art).

    Thanks very much Jane – still working in Moleskine sketchbooks, but am also enjoying breaking out into larger pieces like this. Thanks for venturing to the blog from Flickr!
