excited to announce the first few handcrafted artisan inks & artisanal watercolor collections are available for pre-order! link in profile. bit.ly/tracibautistaCOLOR
.
WELCOME TO the COLOR LAB!! #tracibautistaCOLOR is LIMITED EDITION experimental handcrafted artisan inks, paints and mixed media tools created by me. Each collection is one-of-a-kind, no two sets are completely the same. There are limited quantities and once they are gone, that is it.
.
With these deep, rich color palettes you’ll explore mixed media in a brand new way. My products are created to encourage you to push the limits of your own artwork. They are made with the mixed media artist in mind and they are intended for use in an art journal or sketchbook. Many of the paints and inks can be used with a variety of mark-making tools, a dip pen, some fountain pens or in hand lettering/ modern calligraphy projects too. Basically anywhere you want unique color in your artwork.

What if….I mix a little of this and a little of that?? the design process for each artisanal ink + handmade watercolor collection sometimes starts with an idea of mixing various pigments, micas and minerals to create a specific color. Then each color is derived and designed around the first. Other times I start with a theme, phrase or image and I build a collection from that idea. No matter which way it unfolds, the creative process is always full of play and experimentation. its very intuitive and one thing leads to the next...It's color alchemy.

#tracibautistaCOLOR pre-orders open tomorrow 10/12. make sure to get on the VIP list be the first to know.

from paintings to stencils. my latest stencil collection,"Soulful Scribbles" was created from my recent body of work. an exploration of mark-making and color through abstract art. pouring my thoughts, ideas and feelings on the canvas.
.
I love designing for @stencilgirl_products because they focus on letting the artist's hand drawn look shine through on all their stencils.
.
{my design process} combines both hand + digital work. after I create my drawings and paintings, I photograph or scan them and import them into Photoshop. then it's time to edit, drawing digitally with a pen tablet and cleaning up some of the hand drawn elements.

developing a new handmade watercolor collection. "C-7.alchemy{luster}" is inspired by the rich colors of rocks, minerals & crystals. each color is handcrafted by me from an organic binder & various pigments in my color lab. the colors have a slight luster when light hits them and a slightly gritty texture.
.
the swatches in the first photo were painted over my new resist texture papers. the second is painted on Strathmore watercolor paper.
.
I'm so excited and passionate about this new venture...can't wait to share more!
.
want behind the scenes peeks...sign up for the interest list to be the first to knowwhen the paints become available. pre-orders open in early October.

hello from Paducah! this week I'm in Kentucky teaching at the StencilGirl & friends art journaling event.
.
I'm blessed to have an amazing job that has taken me all around the globe. when I travel, I love the window seat because there is so much inspiration to take in. I get lost in colors, shapes and structures...all waiting to be turned into abstract paintings. I have hundreds of pictures from all my travels that document rural lands to tropical seascapes. I captured a few quick sketches on my flight from ORD to PAH. check it in my story. 💗

{studio sunday} exploring new ways of applying color to paper and fabric with natural dyes, my handcrafted inks, flowers and plants from my garden.
