Acid Berry

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. :)

Jolly Chaos

More art therapy! It really does a mind good to throw around color (in this case, to music). This one was made of many layers, both digital and traditional.

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. :)

Underpinnings

Pretty much a doodle gone crazy. Okay, many layers of doodles. Every now and then, I do some ‘art therapy’ to let my mind wander and relax, just for myself and not for prints―this is one of those. :)

Hape a great week!

Relative Proximity by Karen Gadient, 2015

Another “FingerPaintingFriday” from me: painted with my fingers and nails using watercolor and a little bit of gouache. Lots of nail scraping here.

Enjoy your weekend, friends!

Between the Skies

Between the Skies by Karen Gadient, 2015

It’s “FingerPaintingFriday” again! This one was created with pearlescent watercolor as the base with some regular watercolor on top. I used my fingernails as much as my fingertips, which I think lends a nice effect. To keep the lines clean, I wiped off the nail between scrapes―which also helped when finally scrubbing my nails clean when I was done!

Enjoy your weekend, friends. :)
