This week's tutorial try-out was:
(Here is an update from her blog with her (mostly) finished painting.)
Before the micron pen was added.
This tutorial made me think of chameleons and the way they hide in plain sight. So, it only seemed natural to start by drawing a couple of quick chameleons. Then, instead of using standard geometric shapes, I drew leaves all over the page. I already had some small jars of house paint open in my studio for another project, so I decided to use those colors for the painting. (Plus, the house paint only requires a single coat for a solid finish, so that's a bonus!) After I finished the painting, I wanted to bring back the lines, so I used a micron pen (05 size) along the edges...
