paint party Friday
I tried using my florescent KOI paints to do another water lily, but used the other paints and tombow markers as well.
I'm inspired by views I see like my coleus
the backs of the little cards/paintings. Top left is overlying stamps using tombow avacado green marker, little bird used tombow marker in bright blue and orange, message done with black pigma 05 and a stamp
https://www.youtube) on how to draw whimsical houses with watercolor markers led to this. I used what I had, bright tombow markers not Arteeza, but I learned a lot about dragging color, creating depth, shading and mixing on the paper. I like the "fluid" square paper I'm trying this time. Very stable, able to lift color easily with no pilling, nice weight, easy to use paint, marker, pencil on.
So what did I learn? how the marker colors can move on paper, how to sketch more in perspective, how child like my style is. DH helped with that. I whined about being childish in style, and he said it was like a child's illustrated book, maybe because of the bright colors. That made me feel better.
