I went to a moving sale for an art store. They drastically reduced their prices so they didn’t have to tote everything over to their new location. I heard about the sale a little late, and it was a few more days until I had a day off and could go. This meant that the supplies I was looking for weren’t there – and certainly not the colors. I decided this was a good opportunity to try out new kinds of art materials as well as new colors.
I chose a vintage postcard of an American buffalo (really, it is a bison) that a pen-pal sent.
I made a limit for myself that I could only use the materials that I had bought at the sale, and only one material type per page. I used carbon paper to transfer the outline of the buffalo to my sketchbook.
Here it is in pastel –
This is artist crayons –
This is colored pencil –
This is acryl-gouache –
I will add more versions here as I do them. There is only one more medium to use from that sale, but I am enjoying this enough that I may continue doing this in other mediums – perhaps even in collage and washi tape.
Here is “Jerry’s Artarama jumbo jet sanguine”, charcoal pencil, lamp black pencil, and Derwent onyx.
