Watercolor over crayon on the vases. Watercolor and pen for the blooms. Digital splatter on the 13th. The colors look more neon than they are in life. I am having too much fun with crayons. Warning of what’s to come. Haha.
Paper, matte medium, board. Paint, grass, stems, sky, flowers. Details, pen, puffy paint, watercolor crayon, more paint.
I was not planning for them to be hung side by side. I did not plan ahead. Haha. The grass and stems are crinkled paper, I added dry watercolor crayon to add interest there.
I went too dark with the teal, a new brand of paint for me. When it dried I sanded some of it off. The lettering was still hidden, so I used a pen to accent it. I decided to do the orange flowers as well, even though it was showing through a bit better. The white centers and some of the black dots are puffy paint.
I am calling them done for now. I need to move on. But they look too flat to me. I should add some texture or smudging to the sky. And a few leaves would help as well. There is a texture from previous layers, these are recycled boards. Thought about adding puffy swirls to the sky, haha. Not quite sure I could pull it off. Stressed big time over the teeny tiny birds. Hahaha. Open to suggestions. 🙂
Artists are just children who refuse to put down their crayons.
Just a couple of quick sketches. Thank you, Christine! Your sketchbook saved the day. 🙂 This was NOT the bleed proof pen, but I was pleasantly surprised to find that out.
