Big Blue Oops

This is one of my most recent oops, Originally this started as a tree in watercolors. As you can see this looks nothing like a tree


I do not like to waste paper, and right now I am really trying to save, this mama got a little credit card happy and any extra money needs to go towards those before we get into our new house. So as you can see, for me wasting paper is not an option.

Instead of trashing the page I decided to cover the entire thing with jet black gouache, knowing that gouache reacts to water much like watercolors do, I chose a dry media to use over it. I also wanted to change it up from the white pens so I used Prismacolor™ colored pencils. They didn’t cover as well as I would have liked but I liked the way it came out and it wasn’t a wasted page.
