This is a visual journal page inspired by Teesha Moore (with a little grunginess thrown in for good measure). Media used include Permanent markers, collage papers and scraps (the figure is altered from pieces of Teesha Moore’s old collage sheets), craft acrylic paints, sakura gelly roll white pen, and a triplus fineliner.
Here is a close-up:
Sorry it’s a little blurry. My hand was shaking while taking the photo! The background ended up a little darker than intended, because I’d gone over it with a burnt umber wash and then wiped away with a wet rag. (This was before I knew it was going to be a Teesha-style page, but I used that grunginess to influence my shading along the edges of the page and in the figure.) I am slowly learning to let my “mistakes” guide me to potentials in the piece I’m working on that I might not have otherwise seen. There is an important lesson for me in that!
