Unrealised Realities by AerynKelly13 Unrealised Realities by AerynKelly13
Tuesday the package with these lovely India inks arrived. I first organised them into rainbow order, properly, grabbed a cup of water, a brush, and just started messing around. I'd never used them before, didn't look up how to, just figured I'd run with it. I started brushing on the teal, then went pink, to purple. I dripped water on, did some streaking with the brush, but no real plan. Then I added the girl who features in a lot of my work now and outlined the weird streaks of colour with a pen.

Feeling it needed more I used some shark illustrations that I've done to trace and create silhouettes in the sky. Then I used water, glitter, and pearls to create a sort of "stardust" effect on parts of the sky. Embellish it a bit, you know? Anyway, I hope you like it. I like adding different things to my paintings, making them dimensional a little even, so they're not just simple illustrations on the canvas.

Supplies:
India Ink: Teal, Turquoise, Red Violet, Violet, Black
Faber-Castell Pitt pens
Pearls
Stickles
8x10 canvas

I love the juxtaposition of the sharks and the little girl. You can imagine she's at the bottom of the ocean or that they are swimming in the sky, depending on how you feel about it at the time :D

That's cool, I like that. I mean, I always figure things are the sky, because I'm in love with the stars, but I see it. Could be ocean too, and her hair is swirling around her in the water. ((nods)) Cool!
