I am at it again. Making postcards.
Back on Day# 2120, here, I asked:
Hey, what's your middle name?
And, I bribed you with a postcard if you told me.
Well, 50+ of you did, before the deadline.
And so I start, 1 step at a time start!
I drew 30 4x6" postcards faces on heavy watercolor stock.
I used a black ink brush. Some were quick, others not.
Step 2 was watercolor for the skin tone.
Sometimes this stage looks better than the rest?
I use a $3.99 kids watercolor set,
commensurate with my watercolor skill level.
I actually own better watercolors, but these work well.
I usually use watercolor for the backgrounds, but
I had 4 leftover fat Copic markers & tried using them.
I'm on this kick to use up what I have?
I usually collage the hair and a bit of the background ...
but this time I used watercolor for the hair,
and the collage more sparingly.
Last week, Ann said my faces are changing? Maybe.
I plan to post more step-by steps, as I complete them.
And, I thank all of you, and especially the 95% of you
who took time to tell me the story behind your middle name,
I loved hearing each and every one. But ...
