- Watercolor Paper
- Mixed media tin Albrecht Dürer + PITT artist pen
I always love saying April showers...(do you know what comes next?)
I thought an umbrella silhouette would be fun to make. I also used the big brush pen that comes in the tin to make the raindrops using a similar technique to my previous heart rainbow post.
Start by using the black watercolor pencil to sketch out an umbrella shape. Then use some water and the provided brush to blend the color.
Then, I used the PITT artist pen to add some simple monoline lettering.
Last, I used the side of the big brush pen to make raindrops. If you slightly push the pen tip down at an angle you get the perfect raindrop shape!
Erin is a teacher by day and a creator by night. She loves to try and inspire creativity in her students everyday! Because she’s busy during the day, the night is when her creativity gets to explode into the world through lettering and messing around with watercolors. Her biggest advice would be to not compare your art to other people’s art! Be uniquely you!
