Summer Breezes

Artist: Faustine Vaughn
Artist’s Statement: I am still a beginner in the process of finding my preferred art medium, so have been playing with inks, watercolors, markers, you name it. I love that my 7×7 Zeta Series sketchbook has taken most everything I’ve thrown at it well. Whatever media I use, I love the bright happy colors, and the whiteness of Zeta’s paper really makes them pop. This weekend, while it was cold and snowy outside, I finally had the chance to play with these Tombow (Dual Brush) markers, and these warm sunny colors just had to come out and play. This particular drawing – with the green palm fronds on yellow background – reminds me a lot of a past vacation to Miami – summer breezes, green trees and bright, bright sunshine. I sketched a basic outline with a Micron pen, then colored the areas in with the brush tip of the markers, and then outlined them with the fine tip of a black marker.

MEDIA: Ink and Markers
SURFACE: Zeta Series – Extra Heavyweight – 270 gsm – White – Smooth Finish
