Soul sisters


Soul sisters
By Wendy Aspinall

White pre gesso canvas 20x10
Clear watercolor grounds
Brown water soluble crayon
White fine tip Posca paint pen
Brown Stabilo pencil
Watercolor paints
Good hair day ArtFoamies
Brush marker Pro pens
Paper towel

I love the Good hair Art Foamie. It makes the production of a
lifelike figure so much easier to do.
Yes,  you can print it as is and color it in but you can push the Art Foamie a little more to produce a stunning image.

My canvas was pre gesso and pre-painted with clear watercolor grounds and left overnight to dry.
Spray the ArtFoamie  stamp with a fine mist of water and rub the area of the face and body with a brown water soluble crayon.

Stamp on the canvas , I stamped several figures.

Let dry completely.

I added all the different hair styles and detail with burnt sienna watercolor.

 This color makes for a beautiful skin tone that you can layer to add more depth.

Don’t be afraid to add more color and water to let the color blend into each other.
 If you don’t like it , use a Thirsty Brush or a paper towel to take it away.

Also I decided I didn't like the black pattern on the necks and tops of dresses so I used isopropyl alcohol on a baby wipe to take it away.

Add lots of watercolor layers with drying time in

I used a white fine tipped Posca paint pen and  brown Stabilo  pencil to define the eyes and outline.

When it’s completely dry ,  paint the sides of canvas with black acrylic .
Spray a coat of Varnish to protect.
