For Katya from Me

When I saw Katya's theme of "Museums" and her beautiful Scythian animals, I knew what I wanted to make for her moley. I love cave art animals and archaelogy is one of my favs too.

My procedure:
Sponge thick white paint to texture pages. Don't cover entire page with paint. When dry, ink pages to look like rock walls. Sponge inks for more color and texture. Draw animals with charcoal pencil, smudge in places. Color animals with chalks. Smudge gold glitter glue lightly onto page, scribble veins with gold metallic pen. Spray pages with fixative.

Wow! I love it! It is SO REAL! I had some doubts about my theme but now I am so happy that I did not change it. Thank you very much!

You're so very welcome. I am fascinated by the Pazyryk culture and the Scythians' art, especially their jewelry, so I loved your theme of Museums.

It is great, stunning, awesome - and I'm quite desperate because I don't know how to connect to it with my poor means ... (but I'm looking forward to have the book with your both artwork in my hands - you are so GOOD!
