Stages of Edie; Colored Pencil added to Watercolor
February 24, 2016 § Leave a comment
In this last stage of the mixed media piece of Edie, I add colored pencil to the watercolor after it is thoroughly dried or I may add water soluble colored pencil while still drying. This adds vibrancy to the gradations and greater clarity and richness to the work. Edie’s face contains a wonderful portrayal of the concept of yin and yang. Balance and harmony is achieved as we find the lights within the dark areas and the darks with the light. What a great face!!!!
