The next thing I wanted to try with the Brusho was a wash with purples and blues. I used a 12″ piece of Arches hot pressed water color paper so that I would have plenty of room to work with. The colors are so rich and the paper so nice and thick and accepting of the pigment, which in some cases is smooth and other cases granulated. I wish you touch this!
One of the best ways to meet a 30 Day Coloring Challenge is to sign up for an Online Card Class. I am currently making my way through the Watercolor for Card Makers: Intermediate Techniques. These particular flowers were made with a technique shared by Yana Smakula. I added to the image with coordinating blue and green splatters of paint.
This lovely hydrangea image is by Jennifer Dove. I “painted” the petals using a technique that involves applying some Copic ink onto a palette and using Copic colorless blender to paint it in like watercolor. In this way you are able to get multiple shades from just one color – So fun to apply and so beautiful.
