Nice to see you! Here is a mixed-media painting I just finished today and a picture I took of one of my sketchbook studies done this week. I posted a couple of days ago a picture of how the ice cream cone painting started on Instagram, in case you want to see more process pictures. The method I follow when I am doing most of my mixed-media artwork is:
1. Watercolor pencils for first layer
2. Watercolor paint for second/third layers (adding in values)
3. Prismacolor pencils for final values and added textures
This is it for now! Make sure to visit these next couple of weeks because I will be working A LOT on improving my work as I will be on Easter Break from work. So excited! :)
In this blog you'll find information and resources to help you improve your art skills. I also share tips and encouragement that will help you stay happy and productive as your journey progresses.
