“Life Simplified” at a glance

Just thought I’d do a quick post to review the “Life Simplified” series. So far the series consists of 7 pieces.

Each done using watercolor and permanent marker on 11″ by 15″ Cold Press acid free heavy weight paper.

I think it’s ironic (and perhaps I’m actually using the term right for once) that while working on a series

I also have another exhibitΒ  happening on the 18th of this month.

I’ll post about that sometime too.

In the mean time, here’s something to keep you musically entertained.

Anyway, here it is. Continue reading “#2 of Life Simplified”

New Series: “Life Simplified” Part two

Yesterday I was able to finish up the watercolor painting on the four “Life Simplified” pieces.

Of course, I couldn’t resist going a bit colorful. It’s just my nature!

I did however do only flat colors with minimal shading because I’m going to be writing all over them.

Thus, no need for too much detail.

That being said, here’s a peak at them all colorful like.

Just for fun I’ve added the black outline for a before and after comparison Continue reading “New Series: “Life Simplified” Part two”
