(Please excuse the dark photos)
I take my watercolor ink drawing :
This is just the drawing
And then I place a piece of clear plastic over it and color with markers.
If you want to see a different color in a spot of the picture, just wipe off the first color with just a tiny bit of water.
Just be careful that the plastic shield is always covering your edges so you don't end up drawing on your watercolor paper or wiping of any excess onto it. (Of course you can always get larger sheets than your art paper too.)
(End of tip :) )
Anyway, I ended up not working on that painting last night, because I found that I needed a little bit of warm up painting-time before going into it. I have not painted in a couple of weeks and a little practice time really does go a long way before going into a piece that is planned out.
So I painted a picture on Yupo paper. I bought this paper a couple of weeks ago and have been dying to try it. (It's 100% polypropylene.) It has a silky smooth finish and I was very curious what kind of textures and smooth gradiated water washes could be produced on this paper.
I did complete a piece with the YUPO paper and I will post it in my next blog post! So stay tuned!
