TGIF: Graphite Marshes

Graphite Marshes by Karen Gadient, 2015

Here goes another “FingerPaintingFriday”! This one is a watercolor graphite landscape on 25-year-old watercolor paper (yep, I hoard my art supplies for a long time). Created with only my fingers and nails.

For a larger version and print, please click the image.

Enjoy your weekend, friends. :)

Acid Berry. For a larger version and print, please click the image.

Yep, those are some sharp colors. Done with acrylic paint on Strathmore acrylic paper (first time using, really like) while listening to Jimi Hendrix.

“If it’s too loud, you’re too old.” ― credited most often to Ted Nugent, although I’m sure versions of that quote go back a heckuva long time.

TGIF: Quick Colors

Quick Colors by Karen Gadient, 2015

Time for another “FingerPaintingFriday”! I’ve gotten in the habit of using my fingernails as much as my fingers, messy as it is. This one was painted mainly with gouache, which dried with cracks since I used it without watering it down. I also added some watercolor graphite.

Enjoy your weekend, friends. :)

Yellow kaleidoscopes for #KaleidoSaturday from today and a previous week. The top one was created from a bit of scanned watercolor and the bottom one made from a snapshot of a sunflower bouquet at the grocery. :)

Have a lovely weekend!

TGIF: Ecstatic

Ecstatic by Karen Gadient, 2015

Here is my “FingerPaintingFriday” for this week: painted with my fingers and nails using watercolor and acrylic paint, allowing a little drying time between layers. Had a lot of fun doing this one.

Enjoy your weekend, friends. :)
