Clare

Tuesday, August 5, 2008


This is Clare. She is a quick little study done in graphite and "special" watercolor, born of 2 recent and simultaneous infatuations:

The band, Clare and the Reasons, from Brooklyn, NY. Listen to the tracks "Pluto" (a song of condolence for the overthrown planet we used to know and love) and "Rodi". Be prepared for an entrance into a lovely little world. Plus, the lead singer spells her name the same way I do my middle name.

While I was listening to them, I was on the search for Dr. Martin's Concentrated Watercolor (it feels like a secret I've uncovered). Their saturation is delicious and their layering ability is so exciting. I can't wait to try it all over everything! Even ice-cream!
