Hi everyone, Mou here today getting into the Holiday mood!
Today it's snowing out here and I have a little painting tutorial to celebrate the season. Let me show you the steps I took for the above painting so you can create one too.
For this painting, I used the following supplies:
PITT Artist Pens S tip - BLACK
Other - Watercolor paper, pencil
Start with a light pencil sketch of a floral planter with Holiday elements like pine cones, berries, etc.
Color the elements with Goldfaber Aqua watercolor pencils as shown.
Blend the colors with a brush dipped in water or use the Deluxe waterbrush . Let dry.
After the colors have dried completely, give the individual elements in the composition some definition with S-tip Black PITT Artist pen.
Next add more colors with the Goldfaber Aqua watercolor pencils to create visual depth and dimension.
Rub some Gelatos color Iced Currant, a gorgeous metallic red, onto a craft mat or palette and dilute the pigment with water. Dip your brush into it and use it as ink as you hand-letter the word 'joy' under the painting.
Add some touches of the Iced Currant Gelatos on the berries and the planter to bring some added shin to the painting as a finishing touch.
I hope you enjoyed today's tutorial and will pull out your watercolor pencils, Gelatos and PITT pens this Holiday for some creative joy!
