I’m back to being creative again… well, a little anyhow.
I’ve decided to venture on to a new series of ATC creations. ATCs (or Artist’s Trading Cards) are small artistic creations that measure 2.5 inches by 3.5 inches. The last time I created ATCs was during July’s World Watercolour Month, when I did them using the medium of watercolour. Goes without saying really.
This time around, however, I’m not limited to watercolour. That isn’t to say I won’t use watercolour, as I probably will, but with ATCs anything goes, as long as that anything fits within the boundary of the tiny blank canvas.
For today’s ATC, I’ve used pastels, gel pens and gold and silver marker pens. ‘Phoenix’ is the first in my Mythical Beings and Imaginary Friends series.
This is my first time at using pastels, and I found them quite easy to use and very smudgy! I’ve never washed my hands as much as I have whilst creating this little picture, but it was all fun. It passed a couple of hours as I got carried away with it, which is good.
Both images on this post are a little misleading as they don’t actually show the real size, but as the series progresses you’ll see that they really are ATC size.
