Cool Green Beauty - original pocket artwork (No. 147)
My airy, effortless original art is an original drawing of glass bottles and a samovar on a stylized bar, with pink & blue green collage and "Cool green beauty" in found text, all on a retro library book pocket.
Doodling is a practice in the near-spiritual sense of the word: a little bit of daily exercise that over time pays off in flexibility and technique.
I drew this in bold black, old-fashioned liquid ink ink (not a marker) and added bright, hand-cut bits of vintage books, using archival glue, on a pocket meant to store the date due slip for a school library text.
