On a Meadow Sitting


You can find Life Imitates Doodles Weekly Wednesday Giveaway #9 here. Ends tonight at 11:59 PM PDT!

The master whose work we were to use for this swap was Georges Seurat, the artist who developed Pointilism, one of my favorite styles. I kinda, sorta, didn’t actually cheat when I did my ATCs. See, no one ever said that you had to paint your dots on a white background. So I colored a solid background in the main color for the painting and then did my dots. It worked pretty well, too.

I did all of these with-Pitt Brush Pen and Elmer’s White Acrylic Pen on Illustration board. By now, you probably think this was my main method of doing ATCs. It was the one I used both, but honestly I did sooooo many ATCS that the ones on illustration board were just a fraction. The Pitt Brush pens were my most used medium, along with the Elmer’s White Acrylic pen. I kind of mushed the two together to create texture and more pastel colors than you got with just the Pitt pens.
