Most of my art work starts out as original paintings or photographs that I sell at my stand on the boardwalk at Venice Beach. After the work is done it is photographed and uploaded to create designs at Wendy B’s Studio, For this demonstration I will be using one of my ink and watercolor urban sketches.
The Beginning of a Design
A design begins using the basic tools. Here I have watercolor paper, pencils and paint. I begin by sketching my design in pencil.
After the pencil sketch is done I go over the design with ink. I use an ink pen that will not bleed when water is applied on top of it,
I then apply watercolor and touch up any areas where the ink is too heavily covered with paint.
Making a design from a painting
Once the painting is done I take a photograph or scan it and upload it to my Zazzle store. It is then placed on products and posted for sale in my online store.
