New & Different Art Supplies, Flower Garden Using Markers, Karen Nason
I'm a very new artist, so I don't really have a medium yet. I usually do use watercolors and ink pens. I recently learned some new techniques using markers so that is a new challenge for me. I have never really liked markers, but if you have the right kind of markers, it can make all the difference in the world.
I recently took an online class and this is the class project for it.
I didn't really like some of the markers I used so I tried again in watercolor and then again using prismacolor markers.
I liked the prismacolor markers a lot more. Of course the box of markers I have from prismacolor has a good selection. Having good shades to choose from is the key I think. I learned a lot and have been continuing to use markers.
These are flowers that I like drawing and I tried out the marker techniques I learned. I find my self really loving the look and want to keep using markers.
This was a great challenge, I'm excited to see the different mediums or tools you all decide to try.
