An exercise using Water Soluable Felt Tip Pens
First divide your paper into 6 to 9 segments. If you are unsure of your drawing, trace an image of appropriate size. The point of this exercise is to develop the background. Here I’ve demonstrated a horse with a rider. You can build either an abstract background or one with some distinct detail. Prepare your background and complete by the addition of water with a wet brush to gently merge the color. Don’t scrub and use a minimum amount of water. With a detailed background, wait for the paper to be completely dry and then go over again to enhance the detail. Also, once it’s dried, you can put highlights on the image.
Tip: Experiment with trying to use only primary colours.
