Today I decided to try to make a drawing in mixed media. I like testing different art materials and seeing how they fit together.
Once I tried to draw with markers and pens. Now I 'll be experimenting with watercolors and gel pens.
I changed the picture a little, added clay pots on the steps - I know that in the Mediterranean countries the main entrances to the house are decorated like this
Yes, I used for my work watercolor set, synthetic brush and three Sakura's gel pens.
I start by making a sheet of paper wet. I have Fabriano brand paper, special for mix media artwork.
Then I mix some warm colors - cadmium orange, cadmium red, red ocher - to sketch the brick wall.
So that the red shades do not look too saturated, I add a lot of grassy green to them - the color becomes natural and pleasing to look.
In those areas where the plaster, I paint with a mix of yellow ocher and ultramarine - this combination gives natural shades of gray.
And I paint individual large stones with ocher and natural sienna
Next, I mix ultramarine and grass green to paint the door.
I paint a stained glass insert above it with a mixture of ultramarine and burnt sienna - this combination gives a very dark color.
With the same mixture I paint drop shadows from a pots
And for a pots on the stairs I use a mix of red ocher and natural sienna with a touch of ultramarine added to keep the color inconsistent.
When the paper is dry, I mix greens and yellows to paint moss on rocks and greens on the stairs.
Somewhere I add ultramarine again, somewhere red ocher
Now is the time to use Sakura pens
I take a pen with a 0.35 mm rod and draw the main lines - brickwork, gaps between stones, cracks on the stairs
So, use a pen with a 0.25 mm rod I draw a structure of the plastered wall, irregularities, scratches on stones, the wooden planks of the door and shadows on pots
And finally, with the thickest rod I draw deep cracks and shadows on the stones, especially in the lower part of the picture, under the stairs, I darken the glass on the stained glass insert, I also enhance the shadows between the door leaves and below
I'm trying to make it look like the left side of the door is half open.
I don't know if anyone lives there or if this house is abandoned... let everyone make up their own store)))
