I decided to buy a new journal just for watercolors and settled on the super expensive A4 Moleskine Watercolor Album. I usually use a small 9x6 Aquabee journal but it was spiral-ring bounded and didn't keep my pages in place. Moleskines are extremely popular and I could never figure out what the hype was about (especially because they come with a hefty price tag)
Anyways, let's have a look at my first moleskine journal entry!
Tools used: Daniel Smith pearlescent watercolors (glitter watercolors) and M. Graham
First paint in the unicorn with light blue paint and glitter watercolors for the hair and tail. Add more blue closer to the unicorn and blend outward to create a "glow" effect.
Further strengthen the layers with more diluted blue. Add more glitter on horns, mane and tail. See how she shines!
Paint the Red Bull - flames were tougher to do since I wanted them to have the same glow effect as the unicorn.
Add more flames, yellows and red - TADA! Completed. Now you have a lovely "The LAst Unicorn" fanart.
