Chinese New Year 2006 – Part 2

February 7th, 2006

Lions dance through fields of firecracker debris. Surely good fortune will follow.
Brush pen in my Moleskine … memories of the Chinese New Year parade.

  1. this is a gorgeous page! is the wonderful texture of the watercolor because moleskeine paper doesn’t absorb it?

  2. Cin, yes, that’s what we’ll call painting with “lemonade” – as in … when life gives you lemons … LOL
    When I apply water to the brush pen line it beads up … if I continue gently stroking it across the paper for a few more seconds, it gets this patterned look. If I had kept with it more it would have filled in, as it did with the pants. If I stop while it’s at the semi-beaded stage, it creates an interesting texture that seemed to work for the firecracker debris and the design of the coat.
