I start again on black paper, but this time I do not use a chalk pencil to do my drawing with. Instead, I use a white Rembrandt-Polycolor pencil.
I draw two very simple gumboots on the paper. Note that this pencil can also easily be erased, using a black eraser.
I then draw a simple flower arrangement to spill out of the boots, some rain drops, and a puddle on the ground.
I will be using Derwent Inktense to colour the picture. These come in pencils, as well as in...
... blocks. They are water-soluble, although I will not be making use of this feature for this project.
I start by colouring the boots a bright yellow.
I then colour the flowers white with orange and lime centres.
I colour the stems of the flowers, as well as the drops.
Lastly, I colour the puddles on the ground.
I then use a white Posca marker to write: 'Storms and rain wield a diverse crop of flowers. - Miekie.' I use the white pencil to fill the space on the page with a flower pot with more blooms spilling out of it.
The final double page spread.
