This piece is the cover of my sketchbook which I assembled myself. The mediums I used were colored pencil,water color, and acrylic paints. First I used watercolor to create the ombre background then after wards I created the foreground starting with the waves. For the waves I used water color paint and various blue tones, then i painted the mangos using acrylic paint and colored the flowers using colored pencils. I experimented and added a wispy texture with the clouds on the back cover by dabbing a sponge to get the cloud effect. I chose the colors orange and blue because they contrast each other. And I chose to portray a tropical scene due to my love of the beach and flowers.
For this piece I used alcohol based markers and ink. First I lightly sketched with a pencil then went over in ink and then I used alcohol based prismacolor markers to add color. I used the makers to add value and afterwards I used a white gel pen to add highlights. I chose to illustrate koi fish because they are animals that I love to draw.
This piece was created using water colors and micron pens. First I used a paint brush and various tools to create the splatter effect in the background. I used blue and red to create a purple mixture in the middle. Then using a .05 micron pen I created the flower and vase. The vase is special to me because it has facts about me on it. The flowers hold meaning to me because chose to draw my favorite flowers.
For this piece I used a reference photo that I took of a trail in the woods. The medium I used was oil pastel. I used varying colors to create shadow and I used complimentary colors like purple and green to add even more darkness to the shadow. First I put the base colors down then I added darker colors for contrast.
This is a piece I made for a competition, the theme was "How water affects/benefits our jobs?" I chose a professional track star because without water they would'nt be able to perform to the best of their abilities. I used a variety of B type pencils to create shadow and value. Then after I used blue watercolor paint for the water so that it could pop and create contrast against the athlete. I used the water to form a crown or head piece around the athletes head to signify she is vicorious in her race.
