Video Tutorial :: Watercolour Backgrounds

Wednesday, April 16, 2014

Hi everyone! Today I am sharing with you a fun little tutorial :) I have taken Fairy Abigail by CC Designs and coloured her up with my copics, and then have done a nice soft watercolour background around her using paints. This technique is really difficult to do with copics as you generally get quite a hard line.

I have used Copics to colour her up and Sennelier L'Aquarelle's to do the background. Here are the colours that I used:
