Jam Session


Art: Jam Session by Artist Shelly Bedsaul
I collect post war Japan tomato ware. Meant to be a Royal Bayruth knock off, it developed its own unique charm. Well...now my kitchen is overflowing with it. It makes me smile, but it's time for it to earn its keep by serving as models for my still lifes. Isn't obsession grand? My technique, though time consuming, is simple. I start with a preliminary sketch in graphite. When my design is satisfactory, I ink the sketch, using a black, 05, pigma micron pen. I use Prismacolor pencils. Each area is a layering of about 5 different colors, going from dark to light, until the paper is totally burnished. Once the coloring is complete, I re-ink to make the line work a true black. It is then sprayed with workable fixatif to seal, protect and prevent wax bloom.
