This week at Some Odd Girl we are talking about coloring and today is my turn to show you how to paint your image with watercolor pencils.
For this post today I used Faber Castell pencils but every other high quality pencils will be perfect. And here is the list of colours I used:
For the purpose of this step by step tutorial I used Some Odd Girl mermaid clear stamp set and Stazon ink.I really like it and it's the right one for your watercolor projects because it doesn't spread with water.
And let the fun begin...
patient and wait the paper to completely dry up before doing it.
For the tail I did the same - colored it with the lighter tone just to be sure. I already made the lighter area and then continued with the dark one and the ones that are in shadow.
I wanted our mermaid to look more interesting and drew some husks with dried pencil :)
And it was time to start with the hair. My choice was to color it in light blond and I made the first layer with a really light warm yellow.
I like watercolor pencils just because you can make as much shade tones as you want and this depends only on how much water you use.
And here is the final touch - some blings in the eyes made with a white gel pen.
I hope you enjoy this and would like to try it at home :)
