WOYWW # 348 Winter Birds

If you'd like to play along with us shoot a mugshot of what you are pushing around in your work space this week and link it up here are our hostess Julia's blog.

 Coloring with an water brush continues. I think I have finally figured out a way around the no patience with drying times thing is to do several of the same thing at the same time, by the time you work your way around to the first one again it has dried. (using very little water on these stamped on regular Neenah cardstock not watercolor paper)

Just a practicing thing, the part that is interesting to me at the moment is how the water reacts and shades all of these images are being colored with the same exact water based markers so, its just interesting. ( and slow going) I believe you can click on the photos to see them larger.

I know water coloring is all about the practice. I don't have much patience for practice. I just want things to work right the first time. Is that too much to ask?!!!! LOL... kudos to you for keeping at it though. You go! PJ #50

Hi Sandy, I often work with more than one piece when I'm colouring as I can't wait for things to dry and then I'm tempted to add more colour when I should wait for the first bit to dry. Wishing you a great week and a happy woyww, Angela x 24

The coloring you are showing is beautiful, Stacy. I'm not clear though - are you scribbling each marker into a palette well and then picking up the color with the water brush...and the markers are not directly touching the Neenah? The markers on your desk all look like watercolor / aqua markers, not alcohol. Trying to figure out how you are getting such marvelous interaction of colors and shades. xoxo

Hi, that is exactly correct I scribble water based markers on what ever is handy, clear block, pallet, craft mat and pick up with an aqua brush... :) ( it lets the colors blend)

Thanks for helping me see, Stacy. It's a really cool way to do it, and so logical too. xoxo
