This is a quick digital sketch for JKPP and to share on PPF
This is to celebrate the arrival of my copy of  PORTRAIT REVOLUTION BY JULIA L. KAY.  The book contains over 400 portraits by 200 artists representing 55 Countries, over 900 artists, and 55,000 portraits.
My portrait is on the pages reserved for LIMITED COLOR. My digital drawing is at the bottom on the left.
It was exciting to receive this book and view the work of all the artists I have come to know over 7 years as a member of JKPP.  The work Julia Kay put into this to create the book is amazing.  Just the fact that she created the Julie Kay Portrait Party is amazing.  I am so proud to be included.

I am still enjoying the Alcohol Ink and attempting to control it.  This is a scene on a ceramic tile called MOUNTAINS AND DESERT by EAGHL 2017.  Submitting for PPF also.

First I painted the alcohol ink tile at my sister's (Last week's post.)  Could not wait to get my own supplies and paint some more at home.  Ordered online.  Excitement caused me to order wrong paint.  Ordered Lumiere instead of Alcohol ink. Next I ordered Bisque ceramic tiles instead of regular ceramic tiles.  Experimented with what I had.  While I awaited the correct tiles I went out in the barn and found some broken tile and used it to paint after I had tried the correct paints on paper.

Paint supplies both right and wrong. Lumiere paint in the box and Alcohol Ink out on the table.

Finally have correct tiles.  We will see what happens next week:-)

This is my first attempt at Alcohol Ink painting.  This was done on a 4" x 4" tile and I am hoping to paint some more in the near future.  My sister's niece brought all the supplies and gave us some tips plus I have learned a lot of techniques on YouTube videos. Hoping to accumulate my own supplies soon. Happy to share this on Paint Party Friday.
