I know some of you are still in the new year spirit but guess what Valentine’s Day is approaching! LOL! I know, I know it is 5 weeks away but as someone who makes a living selling my artwork, I must be prepared to face whatever seasons on the calendar LOL. Yes, I am currently working on my Valentine Day series and here is the first painting in this series.
I used soft pastels, markers, fine liners, and colored pencils. Initially, I wasn’t too satisfied with the outcome but I decided to improve it by using Sakura white gel pen and hence the white dots. It does look better, imho. Colored pencils are not my favorite media but I used them anyway because watercolors wouldn’t work with soft pastels.
Here are some progress photos:
