Here's my project for the upcoming Watercolour Weekend on the Art Impressions blog! I have really been loving all the purple that I've seen recently in a lot of fall cards, and decided to incorporate it into my scene using 5416 - WC Vintage Card Set:
I coloured the car with Tombow markers #969 Chocolate/565 Deep Blue, and then did the same with the barn from 5371 - WC Barn Set, using my Stamp Positioner to get the placement right. I also used it for my fence, as I wanted it to appear along side the car - and I only coloured a portion of it. I sketched in the hillsides, the path to the barn and the roadway, then after masking the barn, I stamped the trees from 5372 - WC Mini Foliage around it, and used the foliage stamp in the set to add the leaves using #933 Orange, #177 Dark Jade and #126 Light Olive. I painted a wash of #177 on the hillsides, then masked them off and stamped the pine tree from the set in various heights to create a line of trees in the distance.
I used my damp brush to pull the colour out from the lines on the car, and then picked up #493 Reflex Blue from my palette and painted several layers on it to look worn and a bit faded. I followed the packaging from the stamp set for most of my design as it works so well! Using the daisy bunch with #933 Orange and #856 Chinese Red, I stamped flower clusters around the car, and then did the same with the vine from 5126 - WC Foliage Set 4 using #177 Dark Jade and #636 Imperial Purple. After dabbing everything with my brush, I added some rocks from 5415 - WC Rocks Set in the foreground, shading them with greys & blues. Using the grasses from Foliage Set 4, I filled in around the base of the car and fence. I added shades of #969 Chocolate and #565 Deep Blue to the fence to darken the wood. The barn was painted with #856 Chinese Red with a little brown mixed in to dull the colour, and the grey tones were added to the roof. Some #493 was painted in as the sky.
