New Growth

This small illustration was created using the contents of my April Art Snacks box. There was a mechanical pencil, a black pen with a very fine point, a green alcohol marker, and a brown brush pen. I did not get along well with the brush pen at all – possibly user error – until I decided to use it as watercolour by squeezing some pigment out onto a palette and then picking it up with a wet brush. Once I did that, I really liked the way I could layer warm brown tones.

My Inner Critic is loud and brutal so I often only see the flaws in my art work. However, I actually really like this illustration and I am very happy with it.

    • Thank you, Helen. I dislike having art supplies that are not useful to me so, if they aren’t a great fit for me, I try to convert them to the way I work and the media I like and – if that fails – I donate what I really cannot use to my local High School’s Art Department.
