I made these in my sketch book and I’m wishing I had done them on watercolour paper or used one of my sketch books with heavier paper. I also discovered that the black marker that I used bled a little when I added the watercolour but it is what it is and it’s all a learning experience.
Once again I went back to one of my sketchbooks and added colour to one of my one-line drawings of cats and I added some collage detail. For the collage I spent some time creating some colourful art papers with oil pastels and then cut out droplet shapes. On the blank page in front of the cats I created collage piece using this paper.
Over the last two days I’ve gone back to my 500 Daily Drawing Prompts journal to create two more sketches. The first one I did was the spooky tree which was fun to do but I feel like I relied too heavily on an image I found on Google. The second sketch, the mythical beast, was my own creation. I did search the web for some ideas and came up with this flying serpent.
A couple of days ago I was watching a video on YouTube on how complementary colours ‘vibrate’ when placed next to each other. Jean Lurssen does a series of watercolour videos with exercises that help the painter loosen up and experiment with a number of different techniques. Check her out.
