Before I get started, happy birthday to my mom! Without her, none of this-- my semester abroad, my artistic talent, this project, and my existence (heehee)-- would ever have happened. So thanks and happy birthday, Mom!
I've finished another four pages for this week, but I thought I'd show the process on one of them.
My reference photo: Notre Dame Cathedral, Paris. Gorgeous.
Filling in the secondary areas of color.
Adding some detail and shading with watercolor pencil and tiny brushes.
Getting darker with my shading.
The final page: completely painted, with pen outlines for the cathedral and text boxes.
It's amazing how something that takes so much time to make takes next to no time to post on a blog. Hehe. I think next time when I do one of these process posts, I'm going to include time stamps for all the pictures, so you know how long it takes for me to complete a page. But until then, I hope you enjoyed our little trip to Paris.
