Simple Fun Sketching

Fun sketch done with just a black Stabilo pencil and some water.  

I sketched her out first on watercolor paper.  Then grabbed a spray bottle with water that I keep nearby when I am creating.  Gave her a spritz and let the water drip down the page.  That was my favorite part!  

Not sure yet if I will leave her as is or go back in with some collage and paint.   

So go grab a pencil or crayon and have some simple fun!

My First Mixed Media Video!

Well, I finally took the plunge into video!  Obviously videography is not my strong suit so this will be a work in progress but I am excited to finally share the process of creating one of my mixed media pieces!

I used a small piece of cardboard that I had prepped with a layer of gesso.  I didn't really have a plan for this piece so I created on the fly which is typically how I work.  

Hope you enjoy this peek into my process!  I hope to be sharing more of these eventually with instruction!

Digital Art Process Video!

I realize I promised to start sharing videos with you guys like 3 months ago!
Well better late than never right?!  

This is a recent piece I created in the Procreate App on my iPad Pro.  Included in the layers is a landscape image of a highway and collage paper I scanned into the computer.  I sketched out the girl on a separate layer.  The glitter was a preset brush that is super fun to use for details.  
If you have yet to try Procreate you must check it out!  It is one of my fav apps and is pretty close to the layering you can do with Photoshop.
