I posted the tutorial for this earlier last week but here it is again. It's called Geopaper   This was my first try at this technique.  I didn't have the paper or ink she used  but it still turned out ok. I used water color paper, india ink and Twinkling H2O's. It was a lot of fun to do.

  1. Well Kate, I must say that I like your drawing. Is that crayon, or pastel. Everything about it exemplifies how you said you are feeling, or were feeling. Even the quiet little cat is respecting your desire to be left alone. I admire your commitment to posting. Commitment breeds strength, most of the time. Wishing you a speedy recovery.

  2. Sandi,

    I used Portfolio brand oil pastels on this page and I think gelatos which are another brand of oil pastel made by Faber-castell. I find it is a good way to get color on the page quickly.

  3. I'm sorry that you are feeling crappy. I'm in the same boat here. I loved your answers to your questions and I'm pondering the questions you posed in my little head. I am also enjoying your drawings. It is amazing to me that you can finish them so quickly. You are always so inspiring. Feel better quick.
