12″ X 12″ • acrylic/collage/colored pencil on canvas
Prismacolor? It is very nice and makes me thirsty for lemonaid.
Yes, Prismacolor pencils in conjunction with the acrylic and collage.
Driving myself nuts trying to figure out the process you use with the acrylics/colored pencil layering. I actually lay in bed at night wondering…….lSo very beautiful
I don’t want you to lose any more sleep. Basically, I use the pencil and/or colored pencil along with the acrylic to subtly define shapes, to add a thin, easy to control veil of color, or to add detail that I can’t get with a brush. I start with acrylic, and when it seems to need pencil, I cover the area with matte medium, as the pencil won’t adhere to acrylic properly otherwise. Then after I finish drawing, I seal it in with more medium. Then paint more, draw more, add collage sometimes, layer upon layer, always covering with matte medium before using the colored pencils. its just a continuous back and forth, layer upon layer.
And now you know how its done.
