Art and Creativity Quote by Merwenna Art and Creativity Quote by Merwenna
Wanted to experiment with some new supplies... found this Scott Adams quote online and decided to give it a whirl.  Painted the canvas to give it an old parchmenty sort of look, then calligraphy, then sprinkled it with paint.  Definitely a practice piece,so I guess the quote is fitting? :P

Done with acrylics on canvas & sumi ink

If I remember my terms correctly, that A is done using cadels...I love that style, and I really like this piece. Good work!

Yup!  It's a cadel - sort of based on one that I used for another piece, actually.  :D
