World Watercolour Month and Daily Marker 30 Day Colouring Challenge: July 22nd


I spent a lot of time downloading the songs from the cartoon show Steven Universe, and then listening to them, and I was inspired by the most recent song "It's Over" and did this painting. It's a sad, lonely song about unrequited love and I thought the colours and the image of the lone tree on the island really went with the mood the song set. I used y Kuratake Zig Clean Colour Real Brush pens for the background and then for the black I went in with my Copic marker. I wanted to have the same feel as a paint brush and ink, but with more control.

I also spent a LOT of time repackaging the huge pile of stamps on my desk, ripping them out of their packaging, stamping them out, putting them away and out of my space, So this way I have lots of things already stamped out for colouring something a day. I picked two of the new mermaids from The Greeting Farm because I'm trying to do *more* colouring and get more things used at least once before they go into my stash. The only thing I don't like about this is my phone has been iffy on taking good, true colour pictures and this came out darker than they're actually coloured.
