Make a Wish Materials

Here is the link to today’s journal page. 

This was fun to make. I love green so I really wanted to create a page featuring that colour. I added accents of orange and yellow, a touch of magenta, and sepia to create a lovely background. I used Neocolor II pastels to doodle with to add even more colours.  

I used my Golden Artist Colour paints for today’s page. I love these paints. They’re thick and buttery and glossy. Almost too glossy for the effect I wanted today. I added a whitewash of Liquitex professional gesso to tone the colours back. 

 Have I mentioned how much I’m loving these paintings? I love the wash of colours and I love combining it with the doodles.  

 I used my Faber-Castell Pitt pens to doodle (along with the neocolors) and today I tried out my new Staedtler pigment liner pen. I love it. It is a nice, fine black pen and it worked wonderfully on top of the acrylics. I’ve tried a few other pens that don’t work as well and this was amazing.  

 I’m loving the doodles.   

  The flowers were fun to make too. I’m pretty much finger painting these in. White on black on white on black. I used Golden carbon black and my gesso for these.
