Next up for me in Joanne Sharpe's Letter Love course has been Lesson 11 : Artfully Abstracted.
Started with a cursive writing of our name
Here it is with the doodling, artful abstractions, and the start of colour
Joanne demonstrated her watercolour techniques on 2 different kinds of paper. I decided I should do a little test page in my journal to see how that paper takes the different kinds of watercolours that I have (unfortunately got a bit messy when I added sprays)
Will add to this - would like to try some watercolour pencils and have heard good things about Derwent Inktense Pencils. I have a birthday coming up - if you like these ones or can recommend other watersoluble pencils you use and like please comment.
Decided for this project I most liked my Twinkling H2Os (I have a small set of 6 colours and may need more!) and my koh-i-noor palette set. Loving the outcome
If you click on the picture to see it larger you should be able to pick out some shimmery parts that were done with the H2Os. No prizes for guessing what technique I'm using for my June calendar challenge on Friday!
Still thinking about registering for Alisa Burke's new Doodle Delight online course. This post (video included) has me thinking I must!
