Lydell with you today. I am sharing a painting I did this week, using Watercolors, Pan Pastels and The Crafters Workshop Stencils.
TCW157 Flower Frenzy….See it on the website HERE.
First I layed in my base wash (the face) and wet my watercolour Paper. I then dropped in watercolour paints in purples and blues onto the wet paper. It melds together and blends on its own. You can tip the paper in the direction you want the ‘flow’ to go.
I then started adding layers of detail and shading. I started with the eyes, then moved onto the nose and mouth.
You just keep adding layers, letting each wash dry in between.
You can see her taking shape when the shadows are added. I used different shades of Purple to add shadows.
Now I got out my stencil and a few shades of Pan Pastels…and a sponge. I stuck with the lightest collours in the end. They showed up the best.
Sponge around the stencil and move it to continue the pattern as you move around. This stencil fits nicely inside each print.
I sprayed the painting with Fixative to stop the Pan Pastels from moving.
I created a Tutorial on Snapguide if you would like to follow through, and see how I did this.
See it HERE.
Thanks for stopping by today.
