prang

Watercolor process time lapse

(for those asking/ wondering–these drawings are actually really tiny, like quarter letter paper size, and that’s the only way I can sustain it as a daily exercise. Anything larger or more complex needs a longer time commitment which I really don’t have to spare right now) ✌️

Prang + Windsor & Newton. Wishing I had masking fluid for the polka dots on the dress but I haven’t had the chance to get myself a lot of watercolor tools yet, so just working with the standard prang set and a tiny Windsor & Newton travel kit with watercolor brush pens
