On Tuesday I had three students. I showed them how to use The Elegant Writer pen to outline their drawing and then bleed it out before adding color. All three students did really well with three very different photos/paintings. Unfortunately, I didn't take a photo of them. I will try to do that next time when they return to finish their paintings.
My finished one on a fourth sheet of Arches 300# cold press paper. (While the lily pads are accurate, in color, the water is more dark green and violet - sometimes the camera just does not get the right colors no matter how much I manipulate the white balance while shooting the photo.)
I have another started on Arches 140# hot press, going to see if it makes a difference what kind of paper you use for this technique.
