Series of custom watercolor prints August 14 2014

Watercolors is one of my favorite mediums to work with. So it was really exciting when I got this order for a series of custom watercolor prints. It felt great getting my watercolors out after about a year or so. I love this watercolor set which is over 20 years old. I still remember using this when I was in art school in India. And I can't believe I'm still using it. I do add new colors in it as I run out but some colors I don't use as much are the originals.

Spring Themed Block Printing on Japanese Paper March 19 2014

Even though this winter seems to never end, we all know spring is almost here. So this week I decided to work on some spring themed art. With the "Made By Hand Spring Show" less than a month away, I hand printed a lot of cards in the last few days. Here are a couple of designs I finished printing.

These designs are printed on Japanese Chiri paper. The word "chiri" means leftovers and refers to small bits of the outer black bark of the branches (usually kozo). Kozo paper is made from renewable branches of the kozo (paper mulberry) bush. I love the texture and feel of these paper. These papers are also excellent for block printing. I bought the paper at The Paper Place in Toronto.
