Tommy McDonell Again -- and PALM FRONDS SILHOUETTE SMALL


 This image by artist Tommy McDonell is enough to knock any art-lover off his feet!




My guess is that Tommy used alcohol inks on Yupo (a slick, synthetic substrate that comes in a choice of thickness, as does watercolor paper.)  What a stunning work of art!  My hat's off to you, Tommy!

The stencil used here was Palm Fronds Silhouette Small --  which measures 6"x 6" -- and which has a little sister, Palm Fronds Silhouette Mini -- measuring 4" x 4".  I've often used the two stencils together, really happy with the way that something as simple as two sizes can help create variety while maintaining overall unity within an artwork.


Again, let me announce that you can catch up with Tommy McDonell here--
