This was a terrible pencil sketch of a cardinal in my moleskine. I found the moleskine story paper in the back and thought glue it down on that page and redraw. I did and I really like it now!! Should have taken a before!!
I am going to use more of that flyer!! Nice buff color and it was easy to watercolor over it!!
In case you were wondering the background is Cerulean and Yellow Ochre. I can hardly paint without it anymore. Gives such lovely delicate colors and delicious greys.
I also splattered the background with a wet cerulean!
Lettering is done with my Pentel brush pen...my fav pen and I went back over some of the original lines done with pitt pens because the watercolor dulls it a little I think! And I LOVE the character of the line the Pentel brush pen does!!
