Just as a reminder, here what it looked like when I started.
The first color I added was a blue that I then layered white on top to lighten it.
Next I did the stem, which was again a two layer process, but this time the lighter color was used first.
(goldenrod & light umber)
The next step was the leaves. This was a harder one as I wanted to add some shading so I layered 3 colors.
Again this was the lighter color first.
(apple green, spring green, and grass green for the center vein)
The Poke Root was the hardest. I experimented with a number of things and at one point was going to do another 3 layer technique. I decided against it after some more experimenting and only did 2 and did more with the blender.
This first layer is blush pink
This next layer is the second layer before blending.
Here is the ring after blending the blush pink and crimson red.
This was a lot of work. Took me most of the day. Have a new appreciation both for those that do colored pencil art all the time but also some appreciation for the Zentangle® method that just uses black and white.
Thanks for visiting. As always, comments are welcomed, encouraged, and appreciated.
Go Tangle !!
