marie....these are damn amazing. i want to keep you on call as my illustration secret weapon. :)
Haha! I can be your secret weapon... just toss some money in my dungeon from time to time. ;)
Are you masking out for the blotches? Looks great.
No masking, I just wait till the gouache/pastel wash underneath is dry and I can make the blotches go wherever I want them to. I just tilt the paper whichever direction I want the drips to go in.
