"Umbrella"



Some of you may recognize this watercolor and pencil, but it still holds a special place in my heart. Great theme prompt too. Have a good week!

OOH Lisa, She looks so cute and fashionable in her rain gear. I love the fashion part of this. Very colorful. Great job as usual. Too sweet. Now I have to shopping and pick me up something.

It's adorable, I love her sweet eyes and colorful raincoat. Nice touch having the rubber ducky floating on the puddle too. And I see you too like yellow umbrellas! :-)

I really like your choice of colors. They are so bright and vibrant. Do you layer pencil or pastel on top of your watercolors?

The colors are wonderful--love the purple & yellow. Happy image!

Lisa M Griffin said...

Yes, I LOVE yellow umbrellas and polka dots. ;)

RE: the technique, I usually lay out my illustrations in a watercolor wash and then go over that with watercolor pencils and finally finish it off with prismapencils for some added details and highlights.
