    Altered Book: copper.cobalt rev 1.1

    "With color one obtains an energy
    that seems to stem from witchcraft."
    ~Henri Matisse

    20x12" art journal pages from my altered book project "tekenfilm" plus detail of inked background

    Starting with a slightly wet gessoed page, I dipped a brush in J. Herbin Rose Cyclamen and Bleu Pervenche fountain pen inks and added a bit of color. This is a base layer of color... gesso next, to calm down the colors. The wrinkly page gives the gesso/paints an interesting texture. The first annual NaNoJouMo is going strong! Curious what became of this simple page? Go to copper.cobalt rev 2.1, it's a pretty drastic transition.

    Check out the other pages in the tekenfilm altered children's book project.
