last Saturday i was at the NEC and managed to pick up a water colour set for £19.99. It is the Windsor and Newton Cotman half pan studio set. It has 45 half pans. I have seen it other places with prices ranging from £35-£65...so I think I got a good bargain.
So I wanted to try them out, and after watching a video demo by RHOMANY I decided to try them out along with prismas and Inktense pencils.
Now i had no intentions of blogging this, it was just meant to be a practice piece, but even though there are lots and lots wrong with it, I decided to show you anyway...I mean why not right?
so I quickly drew my girl...I should have reworked her to get her right, but I was too eager to play with the paints...
her shoulders are too big and round, waist too narrow, eyes too big and close together...but i was impatient, so I inked it..
and started colouring with prismas, using watercolour washes over them.
I kept adding layers...
and more layers... i did the hair with Inktense.
more layers... and a wash over the background.
I added more layers to the background, including some mod podge transfers.
added a transferred word, some bubbles ....a frame and its done...
