But the other day I logged onto Etsy to take a look at my shop and saw a piece that really grabbed me on the home page. I immediately went to Geraldine Toucourt's shop and found myself absolutely enchanted by her artwork. And guess what? It's digital art.
As best I can tell, she creates original watercolors of her primary subjects and them layers them over other images, perhaps other watercolors of hers or (so it seems to me but my apologies to Geraldine if I'm incorrect) scans of interesting printed papers like scrapbook papers. I found that approach quite intriguing.
I'm going to take similar photos of the corresponding hillside in the winter mural before I send it off as I think those excerpts have similar possibilities.
