|Joann in the Netherlands do you see yours? |
so much fun to paint on this shape paper (fluid, 140 lb) and I love my #8 silver black velvet brush
I wanted to remember how to paint this owl, so I painted a companion, and here they are in the studio. When I feel safe again, I'll get someone to frame them for me! (click any image to enlarge it for detail)
one morning I felt like exploring light, and using my long narrow paper, and these happened.
I like them so much I don't want to mess them up with more stuff! I used prismacolor watercolor pencils and my waterbrush to blend colors, the white gel pen to paint a pattern on the hanging pot.
I was surprised to turn the page in my Joanna Basford coloring calendar to see this week's sea...
and have been having a good time coloring painting and inking these
this is last week's page and I just love it! She's an amazing illustrator!
it's interesting to me to come and go adding a touch here or there, and seeing how colors look together.
I thought at first, it says a lot about a painter, which colors are being used the most, but I also know that prismacolor pencils tend to break in a sharpener so you might grind them down more from that. Still... I seem to turn to gold and orange, to lime and turquoise a lot although I am liking the gray and purple to create shadows too.
I think from looking at my artwork you can see I like saturated color!
For my non painting friends, these pencils are easy to use, with sharp points, and if you color a line of two colors next to each other, then dab with a waterpen they will blend in front of your eyes. If you have gone over a color with water, you can recolor on top of dried paint, then dab with water to see a blending that is really pretty.
