Lydell with you again today 🙂
I am sharing a ‘work in progress’ for today’s post. It has been so much fun to play on watercolour paper, with a stencil, a palette knife, some crackle texture paste and watercolours, and LOTS of water.
I worked on 300lb watercolour Paper form Canson. Its so nice to work on. Really sturdy and put up with a lot of wetting and re-wetting!
I used a stencil, which had several patterns on it. (TCW491s) I just wanted some light simple design around the edges, not too complicated, as I knew I wanted to add lots of colour.
I also knew I wanted to keep the middle free as I wanted to draw on it. So my pattern needed to stay around the perimeter!
I kept spraying water to make the paint move about more….
I dried it and re-wet and did this same process over and over and over, until I was happy with the result. I will probably add even more after I have finished the drawing!
And after looking hard, I could see a girl….I added some colour pencil and a little white sharpie marker….So I will leave it there and maybe add more when I step away from it a bit….not quite sure it is finished!
Thanks for stopping by today!
Have a great week!
