Hi all,

I just completed my koala painting entitled Tree Top in pastel, coloured pencil, watercolour and gouache on smooth watercolour paper. I started with a fairly dark watercolour wash and then layered in coloured pencil and pastel with gouache for detail.

Thanks

I like everything about this. The light, the textures . . . I can't see where it could possibly be improved upon.

The details and colours are lovely, it's amazing how so much mixed media works so well together.

Very nice, I'm actually amazed at how many materials you used together and it comes out as a nicely blended whole instead of a cacaphony. With so many different materials, I'd expect to see the differences but it totally doesn't show. On contrary, it gives a nice whole :).

Absolutely beautiful. I love the softness of the colors. What kind of pastel did you use? Pastel pencils? If so, what brand?
