Back in the fall, during my unintentional blog hiatus, I created several new pieces of whimsical art using scrap wood pieces, old dictionary pages and ink. They were fun! I have ideas for more pieces in this style once I get back into the studio. Today I’m sharing one of my favorite pieces from the batch I created. It began with one of these pieces of wood, the backgrounds painted with acrylic:
Add some torn paper shapes:
Then lots of ink details and DONE!
Just for fun I left some of the paper un-attached to the surface to make the pieces more dimensional, in this instance the fin on his side!
P.S. If you’d like to see this, and other creations, in person they are located at ProArt Gallery in Greenwood, Indiana!
