Nine of My Heart

This is the companion piece to the previous work posted, Heart is Home. It was created in much the same way: It is a collage done on Strathmore 500 bristol board, using an engraved illustrations from an old anatomy book. I also incorporated a playing card and a scrap of antique marbled paper. The frame around the heart the embossed and perforated edge from a very old holy card. The media used includes liquid acrylic inks, Derwent Inktense watercolor pencils, Prismacolor watercolor pencils, and metallic acrylic inks. The image is 5″ by 5″ square.

I have really become a fan of the Inktense watercolor pencils. The pigmentation is very highly concentrated, more so than any of the other watercolor pencils I have tried. If you enjoy working with watercolor pencils you should give them a try and let me know what you think.


  1. Thanks very much Jane – still working in Moleskine sketchbooks, but am also enjoying breaking out into larger pieces like this. Thanks for venturing to the blog from Flickr!
