I returned to coloured pencils and markers, a combination I favoured some time ago. The figure in the foreground which is supposed to be a running bird, has been painted with markers, using all the shades of red I have at the moment. For the background however I used all the green coloured pencils I have, adding a bit of blue and a bit of brown at some places. Then I used markers again – an yellow green one, a light green one mostly to to over the layer made by the pencils.
This had two effect:
- the pigments of the pencils were solved and blended because of the alcohol ink.
- the colour of the pencils changed a bit, adding a bit of yellow or a lighter touch.
