Emu Illustration

Drawing, Tissue Paper and Watercolour on Watercolour Paper

This combination of mediums always results in a subtle, wonderful illustration. One spends a fair amount of time drawing, focusing mainly on line rather than shading. This results in more paper show-through. Once the drawing is complete, then the layer of tissue paper (which has been scrunched and spread out) is stuck down with PVA glue. Once dry then a small amount of watercolour is applied. Be careful not to overwork this layer.
