Not a thrilling blog title but here is the start to the Foxgloves on the black Stonehenge paper that Vic sent me :) The flowers drawn out and transfered and with the very basic highlights put in. There isn't a very strong light source for this, its very subtle so don't need bright white highlights on it.
Put in some light pink/peach where the spots are. I am not going to draw everyone of those spots (I don't feel like going insane this week, maybe next week :p), just want to suggest them.
Starting in on the petals, deco pink first (last one :/) and then a few layers of peach and yellow. So far I actually like this paper. Much better then white Stonehenge, it does take a lot of layers but the colour seems to go down quicker. Once I am done I will write a longer report on the paper.
Some of the colours used. Mostly Prismacolors but I'm using a white Coloursoft and the Royal Purple Coloursoft.
And where I am at the moment. I need to darken the inside of the bell, the spots and add more pink shades to it, possibly a little yellow if the paper will take more colour once the pinks are down. This is going to take awhile I think, so I will be jumping between this, my eagles and getting the tattoo commission finished up :)
And look what Lynsey from Cuteable sent me! :D Lots of paper to play with, so will be getting my watercolour pencils out in the next few days. I need to put a shelf up for all of my supplies now. Running out of room lol I would love to have a studio, and it wouldn't have to be big. Even just the size of our living room, which isn't big at all. But it would be nice to have a place for all of my supplies and stepping on dropped pencils forgotten on the floor isn't good for the feet :p (but I do have a pencil piece in my hand from almost 20 years ago and it hasn't killed me so don't think another one would hurt :p hopefully....)
