Watercolor, acrylic and permanent marker
After yesterday's detailed painting, I just wanted to do an easy painting, and even though these "wire drawings" are time consuming, they are easier for me than other paintings, as far as design, color choices, etc. I made a discovery today! I did 2 layers of blue watercolor and was disappointed in the color. I knew that there was no way for me to get the color of light teal that I wanted, if I continued to use watercolor, so I switched to acrylic for the blue color. But I first wet each area quickly with a brush, then applied the acrylic really fast, and let it drip. The granulation was so cool!!! I definitely will be doing this technique again. I hope you can zoom in and see what I mean. My favorite part of this painting is the doodling within her dress and I also like her hair.
