Artist's Trading Card Projects, Butterfly Poetry

In the online class, Sketchbook Skool, that I've been enrolled in, several of us have opted to form a little sub-group of ATC (Artist Trading Cards) swapping.  I've never done this before, have preferred to paint large, or in a small sketchbook when out and about.  For those of you who've not heard of these, there is plenty of info online about them, so for the most part, I won't go into what they are here.  But artists have been doing these for a number of years, now, all over the world.  It's both challenging and rewarding to paint this small (the size of a playing card), but I did pretty well for my first attempts, I think.  These are watercolor, with details in Derwent Inktense watersoluble pencils, as well as black Staedtler Pigment liner pen and a touch of Interference Blue, Gold and Red acrylic.

  1. They are beautiful Elsbeth. The colors and words bring me encouragement this evening. It has been a long week thus far.
