The Lost Boys (a custom art piece)

IMG_7954* edit_tag_800

Here is the final version of my custom Lost Boys themed watercolor painting!

My wonderful, longtime internet friend Courtney is expecting a baby boy this fall, and she asked me to make a custom piece for his nursery! She wanted it to be Peter Pan’s Lost Boys themed, and the room will have a woodland theme. So that pretty much gave me the creative freedom to design whatever I dreamed up! (and I LOOOOVE Peter Pan.)

This is 11×14, and I used an amazing new smooth watercolor paper for it. Plus new water color paints= such a difference in the quality! I incorporated a quote I love from the book version of Peter Pan, in my newly-learned calligraphy (plus I know my friend Courtney loves modern calligraphy). For styling, I love it paired with this wood frame. It really completes the feeling of the piece!

Overall I love the storybook page feeling of it. I’m so thankful she asked me to do this! It was so fun.

      • I really love the smooth watercolor paper! I love the texture with traditional rough paper, but when I scan my work, the bumps produce shadows that I can’t really fix in photoshop. Plus I can’t do calligraphy on bumpy paper or the pen nib will rip the paper. I feel like the colors don’t pool up as much on the smooth paper & they’re easier to blend together. Not sure why!
        And the frame is from Hobby Lobby! :)
