I don’t know about you guys but I have been dying to get my art on. I have been looking for some inspiration and finally came across some Jane Davenport Products at Micheals. People in the art community have been raving about them since their big release. They seem to be selling out everywhere. Look at all this goodness…
So many awesome and beautiful things. I wanted almost everything but since we are still recovering from the holidays I decided to get the Mermaid Markers…
and the Flower Stencil. It was hard to take a photo of this one so that you could see the pattern properly.
If you don’t know Jane Davenport she an Australian mixed media artist with tons of heart and personality who teaches all over the place and has tons of online workshops. To go along with her new product line she has offered a FREE workshop here. She keeps adding videos to it as well. I love it when artists do this especially when you have never taken any of their workshops before or are just looking for a little inspiration. So, I sat down with the videos, grabbed my new markers and water colour art journal (I am not a huge lover of plain white backgrounds so I have a journal I made from an old book and used clear gesso on the pages). This was the first girl I did.
I, of course didn’t have all of her supplies but used my own similar ones except for the flower stencil for her hair and the Mermaid Markers, which are to die for. They are water based and have a brush tip. So much colour saturation, I was in love at first brush. After the first girl I couldn’t stop. I just decided to draw the girls myself since I didn’t have the stamps and her paper. Loving the below girl’s hair.
These were inspired by her boho girls and look a lot different from hers but I was watching the videos to get some inspiration and they did exactly that.
I didn’t want to stop so once I finished her current videos I started thinking about all of the women power that was happening all over the world in support of the Woman’s March in Washington. So, I thought who better to paint then the strong Frida Kahlo.
SO much fun. I am feeling artistically rejuvenated and all I want to do is paint!! Thanks Jane!
