EXPERIMENTING WITH WATERCOLORS
Hi lovlies, the first thing I would like to say is HAPPY NEW YEAR!
I'm not sure how your 2016 was but now is the time for new beginnings, it's a new year and let's make it memorable.
We've just moved into a new house in a new state and the start of our year couldn't get any fresher. I got my new studio all set up and I was itching to start a new project.
As you can see, the puppy monsters settled in real quick too :D
The studio in the new house is a fair bit smaller than what we had in our previous house but the storage is much greater so I only have what I need at the time, out on my table and this allows me to utilise my space wisely.
Right, onto the first drawing of the year 2017.
I have no idea why I decided to draw the hedgehog. I went into a folder on my computer and I had previously purchased the stock photo of this cute animal and decided to use it. I was in no mood to search for anything, I just grabbed the first thing and went with it. After outlining the hedgehog onto my drawing paper I was tempted to try something totally new, 'watercolors'. I watched a few 'wet-in-wet' watercolor techniques on YouTube and desperatly wanted to try it.
Guess what? ...it turned out GREAT!!! I loved it so much I decided to make this my 'theme' for all backgrounds in my new drawings for 2017.
Caran d'Ache luminance pencils
Reeves watercolor paint tubes set 36
Zest-it pencil blend
uniPosco 0.7mm paint marker
