The process...

You want to know a little bit more about how I do my artwork?
Well here the basic 5 easy steps ;)

my artwork (process)

1.- I cover my canvases with newspaper and paper maché
2.- Paint the background
3.- With a pencil I draw whatever I’m planning to paint.
4.- Put some color
5.- My favorite part, tons and tons of little details with black ink.

Happy Monday!

I love this Valentina!! The added "mystery" of the newspaper and what it says underneath is intriguing : )

Hi there;

I LOVE your stuff!

Just wondering if you'd share what kind of ink/pens that you use?

I love the outcome of these canvases. Thanks so much for showing us the process, it inspires me to try using newspaper as a base.

Hey thre Valentina...

I am curious, what ink pens do you use on your painted canvas. I too use ink pens on some of my canvases (usually a 8.0 Rotring Isograph). Do you then varnish?

Regards
Lorrie
