My family watched basketball this weekend. To be sociable, I sat in the room with them. But, I don’t like basketball, so I got a lot of tangling done. This is a piece I started over the weekend, but it lacked something. Color, I thought, so I whipped out my new Sakura Koi watercolors.
It was still missing something, so I put it aside for later. When I saw today’s Diva challenge was to use LeeAnn’s new tangle Tuxedo, I knew what was missing: that tangle. I used it in 3 sections that had just been color-washed and the strong contrast with the black was exactly what it needed.
I finished up by coloring in the few black and white sections using Prismacolor colored pencils brushed and blended with baby oil. I just learned that I can use baby oil instead of odorless mineral spirits to color-wash pencils. I love the technique. Does anyone know about the long-term effects of baby oil?
