Sunnyside Simba - Complete by Nicole-Marie-Walker Sunnyside Simba - Complete by Nicole-Marie-Walker

This measures 8 x 12 inches and was painted on canvas paper. It's an interesting surface to work on but I think I'm going back to my smooth watercolor paper for a while.

Thanks to Houndofthenight for the use of this photo.

I love that mottled texture you created for the bg! How did you do that, if you don't mind me asking?

I don't mind at all! ^.^ It is layers of drawing ink. I would put a layer of colors on, let them bleed together and make fun shapes. Then I let it dry and take a water bottle and spritz water over it, heavily is some spots. I then let it dry and the water slowly drying pulls up the ink and leaves even more textures. When that dries I take more ink and use a toothbrush to splatter it all over the painting, then let that dry. When there are several layers of ink already dry you can lay on bits of watercolor, acrylic or more ink to get even more textures, the paint moves around freely and it's really fun. I then take a small paintbrush and accentuate areas I like and adjust areas I don't. Sometimes I splatter even more water on for more textures if I'm not happy with how it looks or I want something more.

My process is very hard to explain because it's very erratic. Maybe I will do a sample tutorial of my ink texture sometime.

Oh no that makes perfect sense to me! I'll definitely have to try that out! That sounds like its a blast to do but very time consuming! That's awesome!
