Original ink drawing painted with watercolor. I added the beige sand colored background digitally using photoshop.
The weather is warming although the evenings are still dipping down into the single digits. Last night it went down to 4˚C. Not to Spring like at all.
This image is available as an archival print in my shop.
BunnyB from Malaysia!
Last night I enlisted the help of my Dad. I asked him to pick a number from 1 to 28. He replied “17”. And BunnyB was the seventeenth commenter on the Monday Art GIVEaway.
Congrats BunnyB and thanks to everyone who entered. I’ll be dropping your print in the mail tomorrow morning. Let me know when it arrives as this is a first; that is, sending art to Malaysia.
I’ll be giving away some art again soon… keep on reading.
He’s cute eh!
I created prints of Milton. They look identical to the original and are available in three different sizes for in my shop. He’s one of my best sellers!
I took a chance and submitted Milton to a flick group called Cutable. This was the first creation I submitted to that group. He made the front page of the Cutable Blog the following morning.
This original was drawn with india ink, lightfast colored pencil and painted with Windsor and Newton Watercolor on Cold press arches watercolor paper.
Comments are now closed. I will announce the winner tomorrow evening. Thanks all for entering.
It’s Monday and it’s time to give another piece of art away to you.
Last time I gave away 2 censored mintaures.
The rules are simple
Leave your name, blog address (if you have one), and email (which I will not share) and comment on this post once only please. Next Monday I will randomly draw one name from the comments and mail you The Four Seasons.
About the Four Seasons
This is one 8×8 inch (203mm by 203mm) print containing all Four Seasons; Winter, Spring, Summer and Fall. It is printed with Vivera inks on heavy 170gm2 matte paper. It will last for generations to come. The originals were created using Faber Castell Pitt artist pens, Micron pens and Windsor and Newton Watercolor on Arches watercolor paper.
The Four Seasons is signed, dated and titled on the back in pencil and will arrive with a small certificate of authenticity. You can see a larger version of each season by clicking on their respective names.
What if I WIN?
On that note, if you win I will contact you by the secret email you left here. I will need you to email me back with your accurate physical mailing address that will never be shared. I will ship worldwide for free! I’ll announce the winner publicly next Monday.
… and What if I Don’t Win?
And if you don’t win the print, it is available for purchase in my Art shop. Each season is also available as an individual 8×8 inch print.
