Mixed Media Watercolor Bear Painting
Last Sunday at the archery range I drew a cute archer bear in my sketchbook. I wanted to add him to my collage so I traced him with a permanent pen on tracing paper, and glued the tracing paper right to the project with gel medium. Then I painted him with gouache. The funky birds were stamps I carved. I stamped them onto lined paper. Then I had them printed onto plastic. I glued the plastic to the watercolor base with the gel medium. If you look closely you can see the Korean text underneath the other images. It adds so many dimensions. To see the details, click on the photo. Then once it loads, click on it again. The shiny paint is some pearlescent watercolor that I picked up at Art Supply Warehouse.
