Good Morning on a cool and crisp day in North East B.C.
Today’s post involves watercolouring and Mary Jo Price Williams Monday Lunchtime Sketch Challenge 110. You can visit her blog here for details.
This card has been 2 days in the making. My first attempt didn’t show the details of the kitty’s face, so, I thought it would be a good idea to give a little advice when watercolouring. It is really important to use Stazon Ink to stamp the image. This ink won’t bleed and it is also important to ink your image up well and stamp firmly on watercolour paper to bring out the detail of the picture. When starting the colouring process, just add small “dots” of colour and blend until you get the depth you are looking for and then add more colour to highlight. My niece, Connie, suggested that I add a little grey in the chair to give it a “weathered” look. Thanks Connie, I believe it worked well. I also used the flourish from Very Vintage inked up with Versamark, to stamp the background layer.
