I think I have found a use for the white Sharpie that has been so frustrating for me to use! Wings! I kind of stumbled onto this subject matter…I don’t really like winged ants…but I thought the shapes were fun and the wings were pretty. The sharpie seemed to work well on top of the water-soluble crayon background on my tinted strathmore paper. Maybe I have found my next encaustic series! Winged creatures! It’s just about time to get back to the wax.
So, my plan is to do a bunch of these winged creature sketches that will turn into encaustic panels. Hopefully I can make that work out.

This is masterful and lovely.
Thanks so much! Sometimes it’s the unplanned sketches that turn out best, this was kind of a surprise one for me 🙂
You’re welcome. 🙂
I love this one. It’s really cool on that paper.
I nominated you for a Liebster Award! 🙂

Great! It is a fun exercise. Can’t wait to see your post!
This is such a great drawing, I love the white on the wings and your line work. Also your composition is really interesting. Can’t wait to see more. Karen
thanks Karen, my brain is whirring with ideas! I am on the lookout for wing inspiration!!! Got some white Winsor & Newton Ink that I am also going to try.
