Some inspiration from Trash Polka style tattoos

Just finished watching last weeks Ink Master and the style they focused on was called Trash Polka.  I loved the composition and the how the red popped in the tattoo artist artwork and  It inspired me to create one of my Geisha Girls in this style.  Defiantly going to do some more creating this way.   
Materials used:
Water color paper
Posca Pens
Water color
Rub on's

Geisha girl complete (forgotten photo)

I didn't realize I never posted the finished photo of this Geisha Girl.  Sadly I haven't been able to draw much lately since I started my new job. I miss it terribly but just haven't had the time. When I do have the time I have no inspiration. I am hoping soon I will be back to drawing.  Until then here is my last Geisha Girl completed.

Geisha Girl #3 complete

Another lovely Sunday spent in the studio. Finished up Geisha Girl #3.  She was created on water color paper using acrylics, Neo Color II, Gelato's, Big Pitt Pen, Prisma Pencils, Posca Pens, Stamps and Ink. I used a decorative tissue paper for the dress.  Just like always everything but the kitchen sink!

Hope you like the newest addition.

Geisha Girl #2 Complete

Just finished up 2 of 4 of my new girls.  She looks like the younger sister to the first one.
To create her I used Neo color II, Gelatos, Prisma pencils, Pitt pen (for the hair), acrylics, white Sharpie marker, Posca pens, inks, stamps and Dylusions spray ink.  Umm I think that's it! Ha.  I really do love my art supplies.  Hope you enjoy what I have created.

Starting out 2015 Geisha style

As 2014 was winding down I found no time to create which doesn't make for a very happy girl.  Thank goodness for time off! It gave me a chance to start creating again.
Exploring the internet mostly Pinterest (totally addicting!)  I found some photos of Geisha's and knew I had to create some of my girls Geisha style.  I drew up 4 girls to start my new series and I am so excited to bring them to life with color!

Here is one of my sketches.

I started adding color to the last girl I drew.  I used a big pitt pen for her hair and Neo II colors, Gelatos and Golden's Titanium White acrylic paint for her skin.  
I started coloring in the flowers with neon Montana markers but didn't like how it looked. 
So like I tell the kids I teach, it's not a mistake just another direction, I covered it up and went a total different way with the flowers. 
Using a white Sharpie paint pen I drew in the flowers.  I love the contrast of the white outlines on the black hair. I used Washi tape to create her dress.  The background was colored in with acrylic and stamped with flowers and butterflies.  

On to the next Geisha Girl. Here is her #WIP.  

Thanks for stopping by to check out what I have been up to. I hope to be posting more often now that the holiday's are over. 

Happy 2015! May you have many happy days to create!
