Here is what you’ll need:
- LePen Flex (#3 Blue, #20 Magenta, #106 Amethyst)
- LePen Drawing (Brush)
- WaterInBrush (Medium)
- Marvy Blending Palette (Glossy surface)
- Watercolor paper
- Draw a circle onto the watercolor paper, I use a compass
- Use the LePen flex and swipe the brush on the glossy surface.
- To start the wet on wet technique; use the water brush to dampen the whole area within the circle
- Add a drop of water to the inked area of the glossy surface and use the water brush to pick up the ink.
- Paint the first color (magenta) into the bottom 1/3 area of the circle. The ink will start to spread, move the color to fill in the area.
- Use the next color (amethyst) repeat step 2 and 4 but this time fill in the middle of the circle. Make sure the paper is damp where the ink blends to create a natural blending effect
- Continue with the last color (blue) and fill in the remaining blank space. Let the blue blend into the amethyst layer too.
- Wait for the painting to dry before continuing to the final drawing layer.
- Use a black brush pen to draw in palm tree. You can draw in 1 or 2 palm trees or draw in a group of them to create a scenic view.
- To draw a palm tree start with the trunk, draw a solid thick line, slightly curved base, or a long triangle base.
- Draw in the fronds: draw 4 lines angling outwards and downwards from the trunk, add lines along the 4 lines to create the silhouette fronds
- Your mini palm tree silhouette is done!
- You can draw anything to create a silhouette. (Building for a cityscape or trees for a forest scene)
- Before you add your silhouette, use white splatter to change the background blending to a galaxy sky
- Try different border shapes too! Use a rectangle or triangle.
