I love color palettes and color challenges, yet I often don't know what to do with the colors unless someone organizes my brain for me with a sketch challenge. So this combines a color and a sketch challenge, to keep my muddled brain organized! Isn't the paint in the color challenge pretty? I'd love to be able to paint!
I wanted to use this whale stamp set because I think the whale is so cute and I had a scrap from a watercolor experiment that fit the stamp perfectly. Then I wondered, how to create a good undersea background? I had another scrap of teal paper and I wondered what it would look like using a broad brush and the bleach technique. I haven't tried bleaching in years. It almost achieves what I had in my thoughts, the swirls and eddies of undersea currents!
I think I will send this to my daughter in California in memory of the whale watching trip we took. We did see four whales in a pod, quite exciting! Thanks for looking and have a great day!
I want to thank the hard-working gals at Paper Playful for listing daily challenges, so nice to have them all in one spot!
