This girl was painted on watercolor paper using Tombow Markers with a wash of water, Koi watercolor, Prismacolor pencils and Pan Pastels. I like the combination of the smooth blending that the Prismacolor gives with the painterly look of the Tombow Markers and koi watercolor. I also like that it does not have the hard edge of a black ink pen. This is a new technique that I learned from a very talented classmate, Linda Moore, from the Joanne Sharpe, Color Love 101 class. Linda made a great youtube video demonstrating the process. Here is the link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KWCKTAKJBdk I know you will love it!
Notice the homemade faux washi tape? I have gobs of it and try to use it whenever I can. The text blocks are tape made from using old receipts.
