A special sort of kiss
This is a bit more on the realistic side than I had planned when I started it.
Sometimes I geek out on form, sometimes colors, sometimes perspective, and sometimes it is the composition.
Every once and a great while I get a tad wrapped up in picking away at something though, and this was one of those times.
I did this pretty picture with Higgins Black Magic ink and Grumbacher watercolor paints.
I had no working title when I did it, so once complete I was stumped on what to call it.
My wife said call it “Miranda eating pussy.”
A bit crass I think.
She was of course being humorous in her title help, but also a tad serious.
It sat around for three weeks until I thought of “Kissing The Velvet.”
If you like the girly girl themed art you should also check out my last post.
I am giving away a fun girly girl original piece of art done in pastels.
Or you can skip that and go straight to the giveaway here.
It is a whole different flavor (and style) than the one shown above.
Anyhow… hope you all enjoy
Miranda Eating Pussy, I meant Kissing The Velvet. *wink*
Have a Sinful Sunday
Art Geeky Notes:
When using Higgins inks for images such as the above I use a combination of dip pens in various sizes and brushes too.
I often dilute my inks with plain tap water.
When I apply watercolor washes it is almost always mid ink-work on detailed pieces.
(like the above)
This allows me to fine tune the work after colors are there without getting an overworked look.
If the piece is less detailed I do ALL my ink-work first and then lay the watercolor washes.
Applying water based inks over watercolor washes is dangerous because it easily creates a muddy look.
That is why I only do so on higher detail artwork. I hate taking the “You just made a mud pie” risk on something unless it is 100% necessary.
Miranda claims that I NEVER get her nose right.
On completion of this the first thing she said to me was “You still didn’t get it right.”
I use her as a subject in a lot of the stuff I do.
It has become a personal quest to someday get her nose right.
The day I do… no matter what the artwork is that she finds her nose to be done right… I shall title it “I got Miranda’s Nose Right.”
Prints of the artwork shown above can be found here.
