sumi brush and silk paints on paper - my new love

Two productive days....gotta love them!

Do you remember last week when I showed the photos of a painting and the final artwork that was finished in the computer? Well, the day after that post the artwork sold! I was so excited! My rep called and said everyone that saw that print loved it. He wanted to know if I could work on a few more in the same feeling. So, today I painted and created 4 more pieces of art from the below paintings.
I am really enjoying working with a sumi brush and silk paints on paper. It feels like silk painting but the paper absorbs the paint so quickly that there is no bleeding. I love it! And the computer allows me to change color and experiment with transparencies and gradients. Keep your fingers crossed that I sell the other 4!

I had to post this photo...do you see some inspiration? I love this dress! So beautiful.
