Here is this weeks illustration for the theme ‘Psychedelic‘ for Tania McCartney’s 52 week illustration challenge:
Pencil sketch, wax crayons and masking fluid painted over with watercolour and outlined in food colouring as I didn’t have any indian inks.
I need to do a little more practice with the masking fluid as this was my firts time using this material. I couldn’t get it off and when I did manage to peel some of it back off it tore the paper.
Each week I have no idea what I will illustrate for the weeks theme. I mull it over in my head and wait for my brain to decide which medium it fancies experimenting with or developing. As usual the image in my head is nothing like the image that eventually comes out in paper this can be a pleasant surprise a s much as it can be a pain in the bum.
Here is my workspace for the day – the dinner table was taken over! 🙂
I used a photo as a reference of magic mushrooms from Back To (Urban) Nature blog.
The next theme is TOYS!
