Something wonderful is coming in 7 days.
Something a lot of you have been emailing and messaging me about very often.
There will also be a giveaway because all of you played a part to make it happen. I am over the moon excited about it and can’t wait to share it with you guys next week.
So…watch this space!
It has something to do with Vincent Van Cat, Frida Catlo and the rest of their friends.
For the houses, I did the drawing on paper with pencil and some shading. Then I scanned it and coloured using Photoshop.
I played around with the layer tools, blending modes, opacity and worked from there. I did some trial and error, mix and match, cleaning and adjustments accompanied with bad singing…et voilà!
It is kind of similar to how I do oil painting. I would do a layer of burnt umber, then I would proceed to layer of black and white and finally the initial block of colours and glazing.
What I’ve learned in colouring artwork both digitally and not is that, building up different coloured layers give a really nice effect in the end.
Also, Photoshop is godsend. Hah
