|it's a pretty display on my desk for now!|
they sometimes end up as cards for friends... tear watercolor paper into fourths and fold.
yesterday I felt like trying to do a portrait with just one color of pencil. The only thing I did was soften the cheek area with the water pen after. Then I experimented with dots as background filler
|tombow watercolor markers and water brush|
the dots wouldn't spread on printer paper so I tore a tiny piece of watercolor paper to try them again.
with no goal in mind but to see how a series of dots in blue and gray acted when dampened, this happened. I like that some dots remained and some blurred into the paper. I felt it needed another color and swiped on the orange... then sketched a hint of a lotus
I like how the pen skipped on the damp paper, and how the orange blended in when I tapped it with a paper towel. Love!! Keeping this one!
and this little somebody started the week on Monday... and now sits in the studio to make me smile
|unfortunately also painted on printer paper 8.5" X 11"|
I have been highly enjoying the series on youtube, Find out Fridays where artists make a piece with supplies they are given...
