Artist and educator Alexandra Walters will host a demo this Saturday about mixed media techniques in Stillman & Birn sketchbooks. This back-eyed Susan (gloriosa daisy) was created by Alexandra for the demo: “For this piece, I combined four media: pen and ink, tube watercolor, watercolor pencils, and dry colored pencils. I first did a simple line drawing with the ink, then laid down an underpainting with the tube watercolor. I started deepening the yellow-oranges with watercolor pencils; I used some water to blend, but wanted to allow some of the lines to portray the folds of the petals. I finished with dry colored pencils, to get nice, crisp details in the center and on the stem. This Beta Series paper may well be my favorite; incredibly versatile and durable. Love it!”
