A Little Bit of Bright Color in a Portrait

July 17, 2019
A Sakura Pigma Professional brush pen sketch in the Arteza Watercolor Book I’ve been testing. Watercolor with a Montana Marker Background. I used a large flat watercolor brush through the portrait.

You already know how I feel about the paper in the Arteza Watercolor Book—pretty ambivalent at best; but there is nothing like a bit of bright color to make you smile.

And if you are working loosely with a flat brush, you might just start giggling because you’re having so much fun.

Get out your journal and make something bright today. Go in bold. Don’t fuss. Let the smile grow.

That’s Schmincke’s Translucent Orange by the way.

(To see my multi-part review of the Arteza Watercolor book simply enter that name in my blog’s search engine. I think there are 9 parts.)

      Thanks so much. I’m probably addicted to Schmincke’s Translucent Orange! No cure.
