Thank you for sharing. I just adore seeing how other artists work. Love this page! The shells are just lovely and the whole feel of it is great :)

I LOVED the video! It was so helpful for me and me a lot about using watercolors, combining watercolors with other mediums, and creating a sketchbook page. Before watching your video, I never knew how to use watercolors. My pages always ended up falling apart with all the water, and I thought I had to wait forever for one color to dry before adding others. I'm not patient, so I've always preferred acrylics. However, you inspired me!

no words... you're great!
I have just noticed how important are the words in your compositions, also as graphic elements, I mean...

Barbi D. said...

I am new to your blog and I am lovin' the inspiration. Today I learned a couple of techniques I will try next time I pull out my watercolors....which might have to be soon! Thanks.

Thanks so much for the video, it has inspired me to get my shells out and sketch them. I have loved seeing your process and the many layers that make up the final page. Much appreciated

Thanks for sharing!

Karen said...

I {heart} the colors and loved seeing the process in the video! Thanks for a great share! :>

Wendy said...

Wow, thanks for sharing that! It makes it seem so much more accessible! I guess I always just assume that drawing/painting is a one-shot deal, and if it doesn't look "right" immediately, then I must be a complete failure. It's good to know that's not the case!!
Back to the sketchbook for me... :)

Kristen (Creative Stash) said...

lovely video, i really enjoyed that. Thanks Alisa!

JootJoot said...

Hi Alisa -- thank you so much for the video. I hope you read this comment because i have a question. What is the tool you are using to paint on your watercolors? It looks like a brush - marker combo that you refill?

Kim said...

This is great! I'm an artist at heart. And a perfectionist. And really pretty insecure about my art. I've never been able to really keep a sketch book because the combination above is not necessarily conducive to quick sketching. But I think I'll try again. You're inspiring. Thanks.

How can I find out what music is playing during this video? I love it (and your sketching of course!).
