Here’s an overview of all the artwork I created in the third week of the project, from November 17th ’till November 23rd.

Paper-cutting and watercolor in a Handbook journal.
I’ve only tried paper-cutting once before, and it’s way more difficult than I thought it was. In reality this work has several tears, but I removed them from the image in Photoshop. I wonder what kind of paper paper-cut artists use that doesn’t tear as much?

I couldn’t find a single leaf that was dry and flat (because it’s been raining forever), so I used what I had in my yard. I think this is the first time in my life that I painted over a natural object.

That was it for week 3!
