I don’t know what it is about Alice in Wonderland. I know it’s super weird, but I just can’t get enough of it.
I’ve been doing a lot of digital art lately, so I’ve had the itch to step away from the screen and do some watercolor painting. I ordered some new Daniel Smith paints for my birthday last month, and I couldn’t be happier with them. The colors are so clean and bright.
I snapped a picture of the line art with my cell phone before I painted it. Plain, ordinary ballpoint pen from Walmart. I do so love those cheapo ballpoint pens.
And here’s the finished piece.
I’m thinking of making this into a small series, so my concept here was to do an image of Alice pre-Wonderland. What was she doing that day to inspire such a trippy dream? Later, I’m hoping to do a couple paintings of her actually in Wonderland. I gotta draw me a Cheshire cat. I’m thinking of making him a munchkin cat. Because that would be adorable.
