Antiquarian art cards.

Before everything went clunk, along with the clunkers and the cash for the clunkers, which clunks today, I sold a few art cards from my Etsy shop. The lower two you can see here are ink and watercolour on washi. They are tiny, just 3.5 x 2.5 inches. The nib of an ink pen can tear every thick washi, so I needed to work quickly. The watercolour soaks right in, no chance of reworking, but the results, if gotten right, are very good.

The top one, a wax resist chalk horse drawing,  is simple, but these drawings are much harder to produce, there are many failure versions for every successful one. Still, it is a medium I very much like using.
