I love Etsy. There are all sorts of amazing artists and crafters that I have discovered there. One of my recent finds is Liesel's Art Studio. She has an great shop with all sorts of beautiful, affordable art in it.
This is the print that she sent me, and it is absolutely beautiful.
The quality is spectacular, I actually thought that it was an original when I opened up the package.
About the process:
I drew the Elephant in by hand with pencil and ink on cold press (textured) watercolor paper, and colored him with watercolor. I then scanned him into the computer and printed him out on 2 1/2" x 3 1/2" Premium Presentation Paper. Its a nice heavy weight paper that prints out beautifully. This one comes in a nice cellophane cover to protect it, with a certificate of authenticity that includes the title, number in the edition (this is one of fifty), date and artist signature.
What a great gift for someone this holiday season! Head over to her shop right now to find the perfect gift!
