No day but today
Hello fellow bloggers.
I've been a bad blogger of late, but I blame it on the holidays!
I've been working on my Sketchbook,
but there is no way it will get finished by the Jan 15th deadline.
I will finish it though. I need to take updated pictures
so I can show you guys.
I had a friend in town for NYE and she asked for a painting.
My only requirement was purples and reds,
and song lyrics from Rent.
I thought about it for a few days.
I knew I wanted to experiment more with my watercolors and ink.
From there, I wasn't sure.
So, I went through my supplies, and my little star templates stood out.
I sat down with my Sketchbook, the stars and a pencil.
A few sketches later, I decided on this layout you see above.
Next was the fun part, outlining it in ink (Micron), and detailing.
Once that part was done, I got to play with my watercolors.
I've read a lot about color theory, but when it comes down to it
I just like to mix my favorite colors and see what happens.
From here I just added layers of color until I liked what I saw.
Not very technical, but I love the outcome :)
