It was so hard to pick which photos to share from @muddy.pigeons’ page! Here are a few of our favorites.
.
The work is often inspired by music and sometimes it’s as simple as a colour.  Ainsley works pretty much exclusively with copic and prisma markers, with sakura microns for the inking and gellyroll/gel pens for the highlights and metallics.
.
“I recently fell in love with Cresent Rendr paper, but I still do all my testing on Carson XL  marker paper.”
.
We love falling in love with art supplies and even more than that we love seeing what YOU do with them!  Use the hashtag #lookatmeae when you post your work so we can find you and maybe we’ll feature you on our feed.  We also love seeing photos of products you purchase in their new homes! It warms our hearts 💗 to know they will be loved dearly, so keep posting those too.
.
Thanks for all the insta-love lately from our recent sales, and don’t forget we’re open until 8 Wednesday-Friday for the Holiday season!

We started stocking these new Sennelier Abstract Acrylics earlier this year and want YOU to know why we love it!!
.
First of all check out this packaging. It comes in a flexible pouch, has a cap that is easy to use, and features a clear window so you can see exactly how much is left at a glance, unlike conventional paint tubes. You will be able to get every drop out of the package, then toss it in the recycling when you're done!
.
It's creamy, highly pigmented, has great coverage, and is affordably priced. Ideal for artists who work on a large scale!
.
This innovative abstract acrylic from Sennelier comes in 60 colours, 34 of which are single pigment colours for clean mixing. Packages are 120mL and there is also a 500ml pouch of Titanium White.
.
• 36 satin finish colours
• 12 high gloss colours
• 6 iridescent colours
• 6 fluorescent colours.
.
.
.
Next time you're in you should check them out and ask our staff any questions that you have about them.
.
First photo taken is from @sennelier1887 Instagram and the second is our display in store.

😍 Seriously though, that line and dot work! 💜 @pastasaladbrandson you rock! .
Leandra likes using various weight and density with inks.
.
"While I do enjoy brush and india ink, I'm a huge fan of micron fine liners. They're very smooth and easy to carry in a pocket or bag. I also prefer them for when I'm doing dotwork. Sometimes I dabble with gouache, but I don't often post the finished product. I've used a variety of brands, but Windsor & Newton seems to be most common in my collection."
.
Wish Leandra luck, working on a BFA ain't no small thing!
.
.
Seriously, we love seeing what you're up to, especially when you got your products with us! Get our attention by tagging us and using #lookatmeae. Maybe you'll be in our feed at an artist feature in the future 😉

Remember waaaaay back in July when we told you we were getting Posca markers in?  We said we were looking for a local artist to be a product tester to review them for us.  Well, after a long wait, we have finally received them and have set up our display! We have some new followers since then so we thought we’d give the opportunity again before picking our tester.
.
What does this mean⁉
It means we want to give 👉YOU👈 free products in exchange for showing the product in action and writing a brief review 😆
😄Read on to find out how you can qualify to be our tester ⤵
.
POSCA markers are opaque and permanent once they dry on porous surfaces.  You can blend them while they are wet, achieving amazing effects without needing any extra supplies, like brushes.  The nibs are stiffer than other markers are intended for surfaces that are tougher than most papers.  All uni Posca tips can be rinsed with water to clean and some are reversible or replaceable.
.
These markers are designed to work on rougher surfaces while still depositing lots of colour and vibrancy.  You can customize your skateboard, shoes, furniture, home decor, and sports helmets.  Posca markers work on concrete, stones, ceramics, wood, metal, textiles, plastic, and glass.  Posca is resistant to water, light, and time once it's dry, so it is highly recommended for outside surfaces.
.
🔺To qualify to be our POSCA product tester🔺
🔹List your project ideas in the comments below ⬇ but ONLY if you're willing to do them❗
.
⛤We'll pick our favorite one and give you FREE PRODUCT to do your project!  The winner has to complete the project within a month and do a social media post to show it off.  We also want a brief review to share with all our customers about how you enjoyed your new Posca markers.
.
For some awesome examples of ideas go check @posca_uk
.
Looking forward to reading about your creative project ideas to see what Winnipeg comes up with! We’ll contact the chosen product tester on Monday December 4th. .

Trying to TAKE better CARE of myself these days so I can feel well and have a sustainable career. If you've been wanting to grab one, you best be taking a trip in to the village.

Today's artist feature, @samyra.jamie has gotten back in touch with her creative side after a long stint of schooling to become a veterinarian.
.
It started as a hobby when she was working on call.  She loves using ink for this reason. If Samyra gets called away for an emergency, she can return to the work with ease, as opposed to some other mediums that require larger blocks of time to work. Her favourite pens of ALL time are Staedtler pigment liners 0.1mm-0.7mm and “When I'm feeling colourful I like to go back to my pentel watercolour set and add some playful bursts of colour to my ink portraits.”
.
As is often the case when an artist starts to share their work, she began getting requests!😄 She now has an Etsy shop and does pet portraits all year round.

Check out @kelly_lewis_artistry!  She’s a self-taught artist. She had no daycare for her third child, so she quit her job and started painting to fill some time while at home with the baby.  She then started selling her work, and now she’s now a full time painter. She’s never been happier making a living!
.
Kelly’s absolute favourite acrylic paints are the Golden series.
.
“The texture is brilliant, the colours are vibrant and they really add so much more to my paintings when I use them. Five hours will go by and I feel like it's been maybe two. I love what I'm doing. I just focus on mixing my colours and blending and shading and adding light. I also love working with epoxy. More and more I'm adding it into my artworks.  It's fairly easy to use and gives a depth and finished touch to my paintings if I'm using it as a clear overcoat, or if I'm using it to paint with the result is always surprising and beautiful.”
.
She’s got so many more diverse and detailed works on her feed, make sure to go check it out and give her some love!

Foniks is our feature artist today (tagged in first photo) .
Her large scale work kit usually consists of Montana spray paint and whatever scraps of acrylic paint she has on hand. The detail work usually requires brushes finer than 000. Japanese brush pens and any fine-pointed by Kuretake do the trick with all her sharp line variations.
.
She has recently fallen in love with toned paper, as you can see in her Inktober work. Something as simple as a highlight with a nib and white ink adds a whole new level of dimension. Strathmore is her go to sketchbook and they come in a variety of sizes which is convenient if she wants to bring something with her to sketch in while she’s on the move.
.
Her process is all about setting unrealistic goals set within tight deadlines that push her to be spontaneous and creative on the spot. They usually start as jokes and she embellishes until it becomes the playful pieces you see right here.

People often tell me they are afraid to use their quilt because it is too beautiful and delicate. However, quilts are the perfect combination of art and function. They are made to endure, to be passed down to the next generation, and most of all, to be be well used and well loved.

Maybe some of you don’t like what you see out your Winnipeg windows today, but I bet that @heathergillespieartist will find some inspiration in it and create some more beautiful work from it!
.
Heather works with acrylic paint on canvas and has found that Golden Artist Colors provide the best vibrancy for her work. She loves to paint her impression of trees.
.
Initially she covers the canvas in a solid layer of background colour, the applies thin layers of colours onto the base. Next comes a rough outline, but this often changes as the painting comes to life.
.
All of the colours on her palette circulate throughout the painting, even though layers added later might cover them up. On the final layer bold, thick strokes are applied.
.
Thank you🙏 for bringing such beautiful, bold🌲 trees 🌳 into our sightline today.
.
If you want to be a featured artist in the future make sure to tag us in your work and use #lookatmeae to get noticed. We love seeing what you’re up to!

Love love LOVE all the colour in @kozmic.art’s work 😍 These first three without black outlines are such a great contrast to some of others, don't you think?
.
We always love sharing about the artist’s process and favorite products, so here it is : The beginning is all about sketching out the idea with Stadtler pencil and the ideas come from all kinds of places like song lyrics, online, out in public, or in nature.
.
Bristol paper is their preferred sketchbook because “the quality of paper is the best,” and it’s thick enough to prevent bleed through.  Bristol paper is awesome for mixed media! Windsor & Newton gauche paints are used in @kozmic.art’s work for the matte look, and the drawings are then outlined in Copic brush pens and Uniball (white ink) pen.
.
We continue to be impressed by everyone who keeps sharing their work on Instagram. We are so digging all your #inktober2017 work! Keep it up, you’re in the home stretch now 😉😝

Today’s artist feature was inspired to join the Instagram Community through hearing about our giveaways on twitter! We’re so thrilled to have you @mogstomp.
.
Christopher’s favorite product since last summer has been Copics, specifically Cool Gray C3 and C6, and loves the fact that they are refillable! Most of the time with Copics he uses Rendr Sketchbooks, which are amazing for heavy mediums and avoid bleedthrough. He loves getting Copics as gifts and commission payments from friends (*hint hint*) and finds fellow artists are a wonderful source for finding good starter colours, especially with flesh tones. Before the Copic crazed days, he was obsessed with blending stumps for pencils.
.
Usually his sketches start with mechanical pencil, then picks up Faber Castell (S) pen, and finally the Copics come out. Tan paper and white gel pen for texture and contrast have been a recent favorite.
.
“I like to draw the simplistic things I'm a fan of, but when I'm doodling it's usually dragons and witches. Focusing on traditional art methods is newer for me, as I usually work with my tablet.. but this has been a new, fun way to play, especially with inktober going on. It feels like a huge art jam.”
.
Go visit @mogstop’s feed to see where you can find him at Comic Con October 27th-29th.

We love 😍 how @dfalkart has added her own house rules to #inktober as an add challenge and opportunity to grow as an artist. .
Here’s how Deanna does it : 🔹No sketching with pencil, commit to every line you make.
🔹Finish what you start, no do-overs.
🔹Try to draw things you haven’t drawn before.
.
Right now she’s using Faber Castell’s Pitt pens because of their reasonable price and the nice level of opacity they produce. Deanna starts with the S size Pitt pen, then fleshes out the lines with F and M sizes. Then come the outlines and colouring the spaces to give it contrast.
.
We love seeing everyone’s Inktober post and having all this artist motivation this month! If you want us to feature you in the future make sure to use our hashtag #lookatmeae and tag us to get our attention

We still have some Denik notebooks in stock! Why do we love them so much? So glad you asked!
.
Denik believes Art can change the world. When you buy one of their notebooks you are supporting an artist and helping to educate kids around the world.
.
They use artists of all skill levels for the artwork on the covers and with every notebook sale, a portion goes to building schools world wide.
.
This is all in addition to providing beautifully made, high quality notebooks!

We're looking forward to a beautiful weekend and checking out Nuit Blanche, but first we want to share another artist feature, @valerie.peasey!
.
She gave us a great write up, so we'll let her do the talking. Here's a bit about her process and the products she uses.
.
"My paintings are all based on photos I've taken near our cottage in NW Ontario. I enlarge the photos to 8x10", then trace the basic shapes. From there I use the graph method to enlarge this onto paper the size of my canvas, and then transfer this to the canvas. Then begins the tedious process of mixing and matching colours with the photo. I record what colours I mix and what area I want to use it in. Then comes the fun part of doing the actual painting.
.
I'm not sure what brands of canvases I've used but have been happy with all that I've bought at Artists Emporium. I've mainly used Liquitex paints but recently bought some Golden colours and I think I'm liking them a little more. I've used a couple brands of palette paper and really like the quick cleanup with them.
.
I'm recently retired from 33 years of nursing and looking forward to being able to do more than 3 paintings a year."
.
Thanks so much for sharing Valerie!
