Japanese Chrysanthemum: Continuing an Unfinished Artwork.

More than a year ago, I found a lovely specimen of Japanese chrysanthemum. I made the sketch and painted most part of the flowers. I stopped working on it when I had too many things to do between our moving back from the UK to Indonesia and my pregnancy. Last week, I decided to finish this unfinished work. And these are some little insights during the process. I found that the paper's characteristics somewhat changed. It was more absorbent and its surface was not as robust as I remembered. I…

Pomegranate Collage Demonstration

I like creative chaos. I just finished a stained paper collage. I thought it would be fun to share the collage process in its stages. I stain/paint a lot of papers with watercolor. This takes time so I usually set aside a day to do this. I stain the paper with primary, secondary colors and neutrals. I line the floor…
