Tote bag painting inspired by one of my sketches

20190711_123954I used acrylic paints and inktense blocks to paint the giraffe which is permanent once activated with water. For good measure I protected the art with a matt spray varnish for acrylic paintings . I am very pleased to see that the 100% cotton material took so well the colours! What a great way to use your own art creations..

I did this sketch using on purpose the elegant writer pen which bleeds when you touch the line with water. I liked the result which gives a watery colour to the feathers.

I found a Thai proverb  matching very well my double spread. Very meaningful!
