Vera Voulik Leather Artworks

An interesting technique. I usually draw the background first (clouds or sky) and then the plane.
I make the backgound first only when using watercolors on paper, but with acrylics and enamels, I prefer to start with the main subject. I use small splatters which allow not to make mistakes. After, my sky and clouds will be unified slowly. Doing so, you can have some very striking contrasts. I think there are as many ways as there are artists.

Next commission works began, on a wonderful A-2 Eastman Leather, Star contract. This jacket is stunning, it was sold to the actual owner by someone of this forum I believe, not an easy-to(find jacket!

A pinup from Elvgren's ones will be the inspiration but hands and arms won't be the same: the girl will be playing with 2 paper planes like on the picture I've made.

Just saw the finished product, as I know the owner of the jacket, and you did an amazing job!!

I stand by what I've already said, your art is, IMO, the closed to period art out there. Congratulations!

Actually, not entirely finished cause I have not applied the varnish satine ;) But paint is indeed finished ;) Thanks for your kind words, Fabien will soon have it.

That's an amazing piece of work, Vera!
And I also love the pictures of your hand at work. The true hand of an artist - like it had a mind of its own.
