Hello friends, this is Smitha! It’s the season to be thankful! I’m pulling out my sketchbook today to paint something fall themed. I’m creating a mixed media art page and sharing the steps with you!
- Tombow Dual Brush Pens (choose a fall themed color scheme)
- Watercolor or mixed media sketchbook
Start with a pencil sketch of various leaf shapes. Fill the page completely with the leaf shapes. I’ve added a few flowers in there too. I just love florals.
Add some color onto the page using a Dual Brush Pen of your choice. Spread the color out slowly using the Tombow Water Brush.
Since Dual Brush Pens are water-based, this technique works beautifully! Use a couple of different Dual Brush Colors to paint the entire page. Let your work dry naturally.
Letter the words “Thankful” or “Thankful everyday” using the Fudenosuke Brush Pen. To highlight the lettering, add a little white paint around the lettering.
To finish off the page, I added white paint highlights to the leaves as well. The final step is to outline the leaves and flowers with the Fudenosuke Brush Pen to create uneven lines that add a sketchy feel to the page.
I hope you enjoyed this tutorial friend! Happy crafting!
