This art journal page is inspired by the fantastic glossy magazine page sent to me in Happy Mail by Linda Bell. (Thanks Linda). The sailor is just magnificent and is a print of a David Hockney painting titled Matelot Kevin Druez 2. I love it!
This is the first time I’ve incorporated a magazine page in this way painting over the top to blend the edges and make the page flow from printed to painted.
