As you recall I have been working on a number of mini paintings whilst following a tutorial of Tracy Verdugo, Embracing Contrasts. The piece was then divided and cut into 12 smaller pieces from which I developed them further to create mini-paintings. I completed the first four as blogged in Kawaii Quartet I and the next for in Another Kawaii Quartet. And only recently I just gotten around to finishing the last four!
Here is the original piece before cutting it up to twelve pieces:
And now I got the last four bits to create mini-paintings. Can you guess where they come from above? Some have been turned to another angle.
And the fun part begins! With some acrylic ink, gouache, gel pens and collages of origami paper and an old newspaper, I set about developing these one after the other. I had some flower and teddy bear craft punches at hand and further got creative. To add some texture, I used some sequins, glitter glue and Sennelier’s 3D acrylic liner too. And here we are!
Once again, it’s loads of fun getting creative like this! Best part is creating spontaneously within a small surface area. Whilst I am more accustomed to larger areas of at least A4 size, the challenge is being able to develop something compact. I love how they all turned out, all cute and sweet. Despite my rather tight schedule with preparing to move houses, it’s always good to set aside some time and work on small things like this. It helps me wind down after a heavy day!
