November Blues mixed media sketch


I found this beautiful stencil on Donna Downey website. Wild flowers. I thought it is perfect for my November Blues sketch.

The sketch started off on an skechbook pad (I like to use mixed media paper) with a few layers of acrylic paints layered on top of each other.

The sketch is made with Portfolio oil pastels, Neooclor II water-soluble crayons, paint markers and most importantly, blue India Ink, which created a wonderful foundation for the rest of my favorite colors - pinks, turquaose, blues, yellows and greens.

I used the stencil on top of the sketch with white acrylic paint to "diffuse" the image and give her the illusion as if she is "lost" in the weeds.
