This is a departure from doll making
but it's just so gorgeous and inspiring I just had to share.
Isn't this beautiful?
|All The Others, Gone|
Look at the emotions; tenderness and grief
of a father reunited with his daughter
depicted in warm shades of gold and chestnut.
Want something with more action?
How about this?
|It Ends In Flame|
I love the movement and the tension of the figure.
But I didn't show you these because they're amazing
(even though they are)
I love these because they're watercolours
made with coffee.
I've got your attention now, haven't I?
They're created by the very talented
Jenny Dolfen in Germany.
I've seen some of her wonderful Tolkien-inspired works
on Deviant Art, too and always wondered how she did it.
If you want to try ipainting with coffee, Jenny created a very accessible tutorial here
which I thought made it so clear and simple and inspiring, I just had to share.
Go over and have a look.
It might tempt you to get out those paintbrushes.
