Intro: The second ATC swap that I have participated in has a bit of historical theme - Moulin Rouge. The Moulin Rouge Swap is open to all media and had no real hard rules... just the typical ones that all swaps have.
What I created: It was a challenge in picking exactly what subjects to choose for the cards... I ended up painting 2 different Can Can Girls and the famous Moulin Rouge Structure which looks like a windmill. Again I used watercolor to paint the basics... then finished off with Prismacolor Colored Pencils and Le Pen marker.
Final thoughts: I honestly think I need to invest in a marker that has a really fine tip...this fine tip is not fine enough. Creating the details like the features of the face was difficult as the line was too thick. I am not even sure if I want to spend time editing any of these cards... I feel like just creating more cards with this theme and perhaps trying different markers.
Again details on these cards can be viewed at any of my 2 galleries that I post actively in along with better quality images.
I used to be a digital artist but switched back to traditional art as I feel more connected with the art I create this way. Currently, I create art whenever I can for art trades and commissions. I have worked with clay (earth clay to modern forms like Polymer, Sculpey, even Air Dry clay) along with watercolors, acrylics, oil paints, pastels, charcoal, pen and pencil drawings, India ink, Chinese Colors, wires, felt fabric, yarn, weaving, basket making, and the list goes on and on. I am currently working on exploring nail art, make-up, dress making, scrapbooking, and small canvas art.
