I have been absent for this month's tutorials, getting ready for Christmas, but I saw SO MANY WONDERFUL TUTORIALS! I will HAVE TO catch up!!!
First of all, THANK YOU to Linda (Holstein) for asking me to "guest post" for this week! Such an HONOR!
For the WCW Challenge this week, I had my card already before Linda asked me to do this. It was our Anniversary card for back in October! I thought with all of the tutorials we've been doing, we could add some more techniques for doing landscape painting. So, I chose to focus on the rocks, doing them with the Mottling Technique. I found a Mottling Technique tutorial by Lydia here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dKkSPttgTUU
Instead of adding color to color, add water to the color you've laid down, to get the mottled look for your rocks! It gives such a NICE textured look!
For a BONUS: You can try the sponged trees. Use any sponge you can find, clean of course. LOL I used an O'Cello Sponge- Damped it, wrung it out, & ripped it with my fingers to get a triangled shaped & then, used them to paint with.
HOPE you enjoy & I CAN'T WAIT to see what you create!
Additional Supplies used:
Brushes- Silver Blk. Velvet- #12, #2, 3/4" Flat, Daler & Rowney Liner-3/0, Art Color #8, Bore Bristle Flat, Delta #00, Dugat #3.
