Here’s a little progression of my weekend work…
Stage One… pencil drawing on watercolour paper, shaded with watercolour pencils
Stage two… I pencilled in the waves of hair and shaded with black watercolour pencil. Then added water to blend it.
Stage three… pen and ink the crown detail
Stage four… added background smudges to test colour ideas
Stage five… I actually missed just layering on colours and experimenting, so I kinda went crazy with ink, acrylic and watercolour.. et voila! – I hope you like it! Either prints or the original will be up for sale soon.
Have a good night all!!
