Tink and Alice for WonderGround Pop Fusion
13x19 Gouache and glitter on Arches watercolor paper
I chose Tinkerbell because I'm a big fan of how cute and sassy she is. With the "Pop" theme I decided to go very minimal with the color and keep it bright and saturated with a touch a pixie dust!
"Down The Rabbit Hole"
13x19 Gouache on Arches watercolor paper and mat board
In the film I love when Alice is falling down the rabbit hole discovering all the floating objects around her. In the beginning,figuring out this piece was slightly complicated for me because of all the black and white together. It would be challenging to paint black and white objects on top of the black and white background while having everything pop out still. After seeing my initial sketch, my very creative boyfriend Juan suggested that I do the red roses border raised off the paper on mat board, everything painted separately and tacked down on foam core to create the floating look. That is exactly what I ended up doing and it turned out really fun!
These are my other two pieces for WonderGround this month! It's been a great experience creating these pieces and pushing myself to work in a larger scale. I am very excited to see them framed and up in the gallery next week. :) Happy Thursday!
