Be Like the Ocean

 I couldn't wait to begin this wonderful mix media tutorial by Natalie Mecham for Life Book 2024 Taster Session. I live 7 miles from the beach.

I loved working on the girls. The details took me awhile. I learned a lot and got to use techniques that I thought I forgot.

I used Jane Davenport watercolors on Fabriano 140 lb. hot press watercolor paper. I used several Prismacolor Pencils and a few Faber-Castell Pitt Artist Brush Pens, as well as a fine line pen. I used a Gelly Roll Pen for a bit of highlights and a natural sponge with white acrylic paint for waves crashing on shore.

I am so happy with this finished piece, that I have already framed and put it on the wall!

I hope to find more of Natalie's tutorials to work on in the future!
