WOW it’s been a long time since posting! I thought I would have heaps of time to draw/paint while travelling, but that hasn’t exactly happened (and the few I have done, I haven’t had a chance to post!).
So I finally sat down in El Retiro Park, Madrid, and starting a painting. Still a work in progress, many more plants needed here! But I’m learning a lot about watercolours each time I experiment. The plants are dry paper, wet paint. The size of the brush helped make the shapes of the leaves. The water is wet paper, wet paint. And mixed in some grey Copic markers and black fineliners as well. So glad my siblings gave me a travel art kit before I left overseas!
A present for Fathers Day. One of my best watercolours so far I would say!
I got a new grey (C-5) Copic Ciao marker! Trying to find the time to draw more, but I think watercolours haver overtaken markers as my new favourite medium. I guess you could say, they’re a different kettle of fish 😉
The story of my life… (seriously I have no idea how to break this cycle! haha)
Merry Christmas! I love holidays – so much more time for painting and playing.
Now I have some watercolour paper, I could finally experiment with the ‘wet on wet’ technique vs the ‘wet on dry’. I really like wetting the paper and letting all the colours bleed and blend. My favourite’s definitely rainbow fox 🙂
