Here is another acrylic and colored pencil painting I finished yesterday. The last pic I took so you could see what the background looked like before I started. I used the adirondack paint daubers on it. I have listed it Here on Ebay.
I thought I would take some pics in-between painting and coloring to show my process. I didn't take as many photos as I probably should have!
First I used the acrylic daubers on 5 x 7 bristol paper. I layered until I was happy. I hit the paper rather hard to make some of the circles so that you can see color behind. These also make good texture on the piece.
Next I drew on the face and then started coloring with my prismacolor pencils.
I colored her dress with white colored pencil then added white acrylic stripes over that. I also splattered white acrylic paint to look sort of like wings.
I rubbed a dark plum color around the edges of the piece. After that I rubbed on some teal and yellows then added black around all the edges.
This is the finished piece after I added more acrylic for highlights and a crown. I varnished the piece then added some more white highlights. The white had turned pink from the colored pencils so adding the white after varnish was necessary to keep it white! I varnished again and now all done:)
I had a little break tonight so I thought I would do another acrylic and colored pencil painting. This time I did it on Bristol paper. The paint goes on much nicer than on the comic backing board I was using!
Also I decided I am going to give this away! All you have to do is leave a comment by December 14th. I will draw a name and announce the winner on the 15th!
I did another journal page using Ranger's Adirondack acrylic paint daubers and colored pencils. I paint the background with the daubers first and then let the page dry. I pencil in the face. I really like these paints because they are flat and you can erase the pencil if you mess up (not the colored pencils just graphite). After I draw the face I use colored pencils to color her. I then add details with white and black acrylic paint and spray with a fixative.
