I blocked in the design with some light acrylic colors and found some text I liked. I left out the big moon in the background because I thought it would be too much yellow.
Added in some details with a pen.
*Favorite Pencils Ever*
These pencils are water soluble but they color beautifully right onto the page. But the real magic comes when you blend over them with a water-pen. The colors are amazing! The larger set comes with a non-soluble out-liner so you can sketch your drawing without worrying about the water washing it away. You can even layer on more color after it’s dried.
I colored with the pencils right over the paint and then blended with my water-pen. The only thing I didn’t color was the turtle because I wanted it to look illuminated, like moonlight was shining on it.
I made some tiny star stamps out of pencil erasers. I used my ZIG .005 pen to draw stars on the tips…
Then I carved the stars with my small exacto knife. It slices through erasers like butta’.
This painting is available in my Etsy shop, where all proceeds go to Cockayne Syndrome research.
