I’ve completed the six tiles I cut from a single piece of mixed-media paper that I had coloured using Distress Oxide inks.
Next, I used Faber-Castell Pitt artist pens to draw the designs and add the patterns on each tile.
To add depth to the designs, I used Inktense pencils and Faber-Castell’s Albrecht Durer Watercolour pencils with a water brush.
Finally, I used either iridescent/metallic watercolour paints or a metallic gel pen to add some shimmering, shining details to each.
I really enjoyed doing these; again, they’re a little different to a lot of the work I’ve done for colouring books, so it’s nice to explore different ways of creating.
The thicker black lines I’m using at this time mean my art reminds me a little of stained glass and also of lino cuts. I do like the very bold lines; it almost seems like I’m making a statement.
