Last week I posted this post about how I paint with watercolor in my sketchbook. Sometimes I’ll also use prismacolor brand colored pencils on top of my watercolor painting. Almost all of my illustrations are done that way, since it is a process I really enjoy.
Just fyi the painting in the video is for the cover of Just in Time Book 3 that will be out next year. Just in Time Books 1 and 2 are coming out in September. Check them out here.
Have fun watching it and trying some of your own stuff with these two medias. When you do I’d love to see it. Email me a picture or share a link to your illustration in the comments. Also since the video just shows the basics, let me know what questions you have about this process. I’d be happy to answer them.
