Breadth 3

Tangled in Colors 
'' x "

For this breadth, I used watercolor and pencil. First I did a contour drawing of my friend Dallas.  You can find her blog here,  I then transferred my drawing, using a light box, onto watercolor paper, which I had soaked for ten minutes and dried using paper towels. Before painting over the pencil, I practiced on a small piece of watercolor paper to make sure the pencil wouldn’t smear.   After transferring my drawing, I picked the colors I wanted to use for this piece and began painting.  I decided to have a little fun with the painting by mixing reds and yellows and flicking paint from the brush, using my finger, to give it a splattered effect.   This was a quick piece of art to do and allows you to have a good time while painting.  I encourage everyone to play around and paint with watercolor.  You won’t regret it!
