A bit of Carnival Prague….

At this moment I have been working on a carnival themed Prague for a global collaboration of 80 artists that create a card each. Mine is 10 of pentacles. This year it is ‘Carnival’ theme and I would like to share the progress of my artwork with you tonight. I had started out with a grey led pencil drawing…. as seen below…..

And now I have begun the watercolour process…
I’m using Koi watercolour pan paint with some tube paints by Liquitex and Windsor & Newton watercolours with a water brush pen. I will update further later
