Mixed media materials, watercolor pencils & watercolor paints on Bee Heavyweight Vellum.
Someone had mixed my pencils….this was to be a strictly watercolor pencil piece. When I went to blend however, I discovered I was using regular pencils on three portions within the shell! I was mortified. I have never really tried mixed media. As realism was totally lost at this point due to the blunder, I decided to go with the flow and play with the paints a bit. Although it is nothing what I had originally intended it to be, I was pleasantly surprised by the outcome. I might start mixing mediums more often!
