View Full Version : Koala painting now finished
01-23-2013, 06:19 AM
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.

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

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?
How cute he is! You paint it very well!
