"Arboretum" - #inktober Day 17


#Inktober 2017 Day 17
Original unicorn ink and watercolor art

Every day of #Inktober 2017 I chose a specific watercolor for my INKspiration in creating a unique unicorn (Uniquorn) illustration!

The name of this watercolor immediately brought to mind a labyrinth. Of course this Uniquorn isn’t content to remain within the maze; she’s bucking convention to do her own thing! 

(This theme also has special warmth for me because I lived in the boroughs of Philadelphia for a year and my son and I frequented Morris Arboretum quite a lot!) 

I love this Jazper Stardust- Finer Handmade Art Materials watercolor (“Arboretum” of course) because of the color itself, as well as the range it gives me. 

While for this piece I used it thickly (echoing dense greenery and shrubbery, especially in a labyrinth), it also allows for lovely transparent washes! 

And versatility is one of my core values!

You can find the whole series on my Instagram feed!

After the 31st of October, the entire Dancing Uniquorn #inktober 2017 unicorn series was made into vector graphics and uploaded to my RedBubble shop, where you can find these beauties on mugs, apparel (even onesies!), on laptop covers and duvets!
