Day 26 and Day 27 – #WorldWatercolorMonth


– Pink Seahorse –
Day #26 World Watercolor Month

This post is for two days Day #26/31 of the World Watercolor Month  Today painting is a Study of a Seahorse. I painted the same seahorse on two different papers one is on white paper with light washes of colors and outlined with a brown ink pen. The result is a delicate and ethereal Seahorse.

Day #27/31 Today to do something different for my study, I painted the same seahorse on a black paper. First I painted some of the background with rich pigmented colors. The effect change dramatically. This time after the background was dry I draw the seahorse with a white gel pen. And I really like how it looks!

Day 25 – #WorldWatercolorMonth

– Poppy Flowers –
Day #25 World Watercolor Month

This is Day #25/31 of the World Watercolor Month  today I wanted to paint my watercolor on “Tomoe River” Paper a lightweight and ultra smooth paper from Japan. This is a very light weight paper only 52 gsm nothing like watercolor paper,  it is so thin that is almost see through.  This is a writers paper perfect for fountains pens and any kind of pens and pencils also markers because it doesn’t bleed through.  The paper also holds beautifully light washes of watercolor. If you are familiar with the “Hobonichi Techo Planner” from Japan then you know that the amazing trendy planner that has followers all over the world is made out of this paper and is often used like an illustrated planner more like a sketchbook to illustrate the daily life! I love how the watercolor move freely and blend on the smooth magic thin paper. I painted these Poppy flowers straight with the watercolors without even trace them before. I also love the way the purple shadow turned out I outlined with the black ink pen but I wish I took a before picture it was beautiful also without the outline. I hope that you enjoyed my Day#25 in few hours I will post Day #26!❤
