Climbing trees! I mean, what could possibly go wrong?

This was a whole lot of fun from initial sketch to final artwork! I was particularly happy with the subtle blues and yellows in the background, especially since they stayed their respective colours and didn’t mix into weird green sky!

How did I do it?

Well! The paper was covered with an even layer of clean water before I added the two colours separately, careful not to use the brush over where they met. Then I let them mingle together on the paper enough to make a gradient and BOOM – softly blended sky!

You can watch it happen in the video below. 🙂
