From Books and Marbling Paper

I rediscovered an ancient technic for my work, the Marbling of paper

I always wanted to use it for my illustrations, to create a phantastic level in my art. It also helps me to get away from “knitting the picture to death” The freestyle Marbling effect gives the audience air to breath and space for own thoughts if they look at the illustration.

It was a long way to find the suitable colors, paper and marbling ground, but finally I found my favourites

Although the technic is ruled by coincidence, I hope I can “tame” the colors to do what I want

Marbling Paper will play a big role in my next children-book. Nothing a digital brush in photoshop can copy
