Art Resolutions is a self-imposed initiative to create an art study each day for a year. Welcome to day 21.
As in my peacock exercise from last week, I was anxious to bring my marker on watercolor design into the Tayasui drawing program. I was thoroughly fascinated trying different ways to add depth, differentiation and texture to the piece. I used the watercolor, crayon, eraser, and pencil tools. I especially liked the effect applying colored pencil and crayon over darker under layers. Again, using the eraser tool I removed the background and ended up with the effect of a block print. When generating different versions of studies in this program, I usually end up preferring the last one which, inevitably, has more value contrast. But I find that, in the end, I like these both nearly equally for different reasons.
OK, I still like the one below–a little more.
