Ledger of inspiration



A different kind of approach in my ledger today. I took part of a painting and drew the form in tiny lines in different hues of blue with my fine-liners. After that I very carefully with as little water as possible I added water colour and when everything was totally dry again I added white with a Posca pen.

The form isn't randomly chosen but can be found on a famous painting called Starry Night by Vincent van Gogh. I had to include him since he lived just a village away from my hometown. Besides this I find it such a contradiction that he felt like he failed to create a life for himself while at present his paintings are worth millions.

Enjoy your day!
