Tropical Days

Artist: Janine Weiss, United States
Artist Statement: As a fashion designer, owning my own business, I had gotten away from taking the time to just sit, draw, paint and doodle for my personal self. I got hooked on Instagram and the many different artists I found there, each so inspirational in their own way. I picked up a Stillman & Birn small sketchbook, 3.5 x 5.5, Zeta Series, along with pigment pens and a small travel watercolor set. I started carrying them everywhere. Now I’m out of control, sketching, doodling and creating everyday….and posting. Each day I start it with a sketch, then I check my email. I love the challenge of using a small travel sketchbook and turning out a quick piece of art in under ten minutes.

For “Tropical Days”, I started with a very light quick sketch to get proportion with a 4H pencil. I then put the black line using a basic ballpoint pen. I applied layers of watercolor for the final touch.

MEDIA: Watercolor and ink
SURFACE: Zeta Series – Extra Heavy Weight – 270 gsm – White – Smooth Finish
