A Few Ghosts....


napalm

Recommended Posts

So, I posted a PIF for more ghosts.... I'm going to try for a new avatar each day...

 

I'm getting ready to Frame my Napalms.

Fountain pens are my preferred COLOR DELIVERY SYSTEM (in part because crayons melt in Las Vegas).

Create a Ghostly Avatar and I'll send you a letter. Check out some Ink comparisons: The Great PPS Comparison 

Don't know where to start?  Look at the Inky Topics O'day.  Then, see inks sorted by color: Blue Purple Brown Red Green Dark Green Orange Black Pinks Yellows Blue-Blacks Grey/Gray UVInks Turquoise/Teal MURKY

This is a quote that really needs context...

And someone has to speak up for them as has no voices.”

I dont know the story of that drawing... But it seems inspired on a Salvador Dalí painting. Am i right? Btw, well done! Edited by Oldtimer

Napalm is the OP and posts a lot of incredible paintings here.

I know.... the ways that quote can be misconstrued.....

 

I'm framing the lovely postcards with the Avatar images that Napalm has made for me.

What kind of paper do you use? I've been using a 98lb sketchbook because it's available, but its really absorbent.

Naplam: Wow! Tripple Wow! It's a delight to see your renderings, they are lovely. i am sorry if i don't reference th either artists, it is difficult for me in a tiny mini iPad to follow whose works are which. But i am enjoying this !

i don't know if this PIF is still running. I tried this with inks (this one) and another one with watercolor pencils which is still drying. i would definitely love to try some papers to do this on a small scale as cards for family. I am hooked! This being the first in some old samples from Blick, which i requested for same project in the future- is not perfect. I am hooked!

 

Parchment paper (this curled up)

Unfortunately the following had already some written words while i tested the paper and i wrote over the washed out letters to cover them.

189 lb wt. (better)

For postcards I can recommend the Winsor & Newton Cotman "Water Colour Postcards", they work equally well with watercolors and FP. The other common choice is the Daler Rowney Langton Prestige "Watercolour Postcards", they're 100% cotton and will work nicely with watercolour (producing some softer results) however FP won't work that well with them.

i tried watercolor pencils because i am not good with watercolor paints. t looks like real fun.

Thank You. that seems like the final element for the project.

Watercolour pencils work equally well. Some tips to get you started quickly with postcards for the family:

 

- Draw the outlines with a HB graphite pencil; be light handed and use an eraser to correct until you get them right

- Draw over the pencil lines with a waterproof fine liner; for this size (postcard) a Sakura Pigma Micron 02 or 03 will work great (or your favorite brand in a 0.2-.3mm width)

- Erase the pencil marks that were left; a black eraser work best (such as a Staedtler black Rasoplast); the white polymer ones may smudge

- Now you're ready to color it - be light on color, you need just to suggest it, don't go overboard with dark heavy applications

 

Have fun!

P.S. You can use an (E)F nib FP with Platinum Carbon Black ink instead of the fine liner; and diluted FP inks instead of watercolors. You'll need a brush though, there's no way around it :P
