Here’s how my inking process begins, once I have the graphite sketch finalized I start inking in the major outlines and finer details, eventually I’ll erase the graphite from under the ink. This piece is an ode to the California mountain lion, a rare and beautiful predator emblematic of true Wilderness.
This piece will be a part of a show at @atelier_rosal in the Rahway arts district, NJ, opening in April!
Absolem the blue caterpillar, one of my favorite Wonderland characters that I’ve been commissioned to paint. I have prints of this particular piece at www.society6.com/caitlinhackettart (these prints are in my Society6 shop, not my Storenvy shop! )
I’m nearly done with this bear commission piece, a painting inspired by a dream. Painted in watercolor, acrylic, and pen & ink on cold press watercolor paper.
