Well, this was an interesting exercise. Again, using a moon as a background, this will use a Heron as the focal point. If you’re a watercolor “purist”, just stop reading right now! I used watercolors, a gold pen, a black pen, and an oil paint pen on this piece… I know, I know, I am a watercolor blasphemer.
Here’s the “moon” beginnings
Added the Heron. It will eventually be standing in water, as a landscape. Because I’m painting over dark blue, I am adding white to the bird colors to make them opaque. I RARELY do this. I also added scribbly black pen.
Oh wait – I forgot that it’s a landscape the moon has to be BEHIND the water, gahhhh
Colors are too disparate, glaze the moon with Quin Gold. Nope, still not happening for me, add some gold pen. I immediately regret the gold pen……….
How about a bit more white, with the oil paint pen?
gahhh, this is sooooooooooo overworked, I’m calling it done. Not a keeper, just done. I love being in my studio, so even tho’ the painting is not a success, my day is……..
