Dr. Ph. Martin's, 6 of 8: Elizabeth

The watercolor trend has found it's way into the Studio!  Join us over the next four weeks as we ink up our paintbrushes (and fingers!) with Dr. Ph Martin's Hydrus Fine Art Watercolors.

Picking up my drawing pencils and paint brushes to see what might be hidden in this Inchie Arts ATC Art Square.
She had so many beautiful thoughts that her hair blossomed into flowers.
Two ATC Inchie Art Squares were used for this tiny painting.  The first was used as a base for the sketch and the watercolors.  The second was trimmed to create a frame.

I love working with Dr. Ph. Martin's Hydrus Watercolors as many levels of color intensity can be achieved.  As you can see, everything is possible from brilliant flowers to soft skin tones.

As you probably guessed from reading my previous posts and hearing about my affection for Dr. Ph. Martin's Bleed Proof White, I did use it for the "starry" speckles.

The solid core of the Inchie Art Squares gives hand-cut frames a beautiful dimensional edge. They also provided a superb base on to which I could apply many layers of watercolors, clear gesso and medium gel mat without having to worry about the square warping or pilling.

I'm excited, thrilled and honored that there will be a special announcement posted on the Inchie Arts Blog later this morning!
