Artwork-Blue Tea, Zebra Pen Technical Pen and Qor Phthalo Blue watercolor on Hahnemühle Cézanne Cold Pressed Watercolor paper
I hadn’t intended for this to be a Pencil To Paint, but it just ended up that way. Since I’m repeating steps from one I did last month, I’m making it a Monday special instead the usual Tuesday. Tomorrow’s Pencil To Paint is one I did using a red tea!
I started by using Butterfly Peaflower tea for the back ground, squeezing tea from the dried, steeped flowers and moving them around the page.
When the peaflowers were removed and the tea dried, I had this result.
Then I picked out all sorts of shapes with a technical pen.
I left it at that for the previous tutorial, but it felt unfinished to me. I decided to do a negative painting. I often do this because I see a shape or because I don’t like something and want to save it.
This time I just wanted to do a negative painting, lol. I decided to do a cat using Qor Phthalo Blue to paint around the shape of a cat.
You can still see all the shapes I drew, but now there is a subject to give them meaning. What DO cats dream of? Whatever they want to, thank you very much. Lol!
Wanna buy some of these cool toys now?
