Hello! If you’re joining me from Art to the 5th’s 2016 DLP website or their weekly unPlanner blog, welcome :).
It's an honor to be a Documented Life Project Featured Artist!
My absolute vocation or creative calling has always been watercolor. Currently, I am working on something tremendous—a dream-come-true art project that will allow me to share my watercolor skills in a bigger way. Stay tuned...
This week’s challenge is: “Ask someone else to draw or make marks on your art piece”. I love doing collaborative art with my 4-year-old. And since he’s a space-nut, this art journal page is dedicated to him.
Some art materials you'll need are:
- Your unPlanner (or whatever sketchbook system of your choice). Currently, I'm using this travel size watercolor journal.
- Any basic watercolor set with standard colors. I use blue, green, orange, & white gouache.
- Concentrated Water Colors in convenient dropper bottles. [Note: although brilliant, these pigments are actually dyes and will fade over time].
- Black waterproof india ink. This one dries super duper matte, which is great for journal writing on top of.
Enjoy my tutorial video below. As always, big hugs!
