After many weeks of working on her she is now completed. I had some issues with the original digital scans and chose to scrap them and rescan her which took some time. She turned out pretty cute as she blows bubbles to water and grow her garden of pink flowers. Continue reading

Cluster – a fungi illustration at sunrise

Mushrooms illustration magical art by jessica doyle sunrise

Paper Size – 10×10 inches (25,5cm by 25,5cm)
Mediums – Prismacolor watercolour penicl crayons and Verithin coloured pencils and Faber Castell Pitt Artist Oens on Arches rough textured watercolour paper

I really enjoyed creating this fascinating piece. The sky took a copious amount of time as it’s pencil crayon only which is much more time consuming to render with than watercolour at times. I spent most evenings over the last week or two working on the sky alone to give it that soft and serene effect. Above is what it looked like before any pencil crayon had been added to the sky.

And late last week I also took a trip to the local art store and purchased some smooth hot press Arches watercolour paper to test out on next. I’ve been working with cold press and cold press rough and need a change of pace eh! Continue reading

Culmination – new illustration

Mushroom art entitled Culmination by Artist Jesisca Doyle

Peeled the tape off of this piece last night, let it sit and air out. Not that an illustration created with ink, watercolour and coloured pencil needs to air out and dry but it is a nice way to welcome it into the world. Or perhaps, I’ve lost it. Continue reading

A Little Something – limited edition series of three fine art prints

floral abstract fine art

These beautiful illustrations have taken a long time to produce, from when they first painted one year ago, into fine art prints. It wasn’t until a local buyer here in Saint John requested them as a series of fine art prints to hang in her children’s bedroom that I actually created them this past weekend.

And they are soft, pastel and lovely!

Each measures 8.5 by 11 inches (21,5cm by 28cm). This is a limited edition run of 25 editions only.

Anyhow, they are listed! Enjoy!
