I’m constantly looking for inspiration for my product designs. I got the idea to create bright and beautiful bursts of colors for the backgrounds for my new designs. So, I tried both colored pencil and watercolor. While both are excellent choices to create backgrounds, what I really needed was to create a nice, quick range of different colors.
Then, I turned to my acrylic paints. I only had the basic colors; white, black, brown, red, and a few other colors. My last resort, which I had completely forgotten about, was my pastels!
I was so excited because now I wouldn’t have to invest in a new medium; I was thinking of gouache.
So, I prepped the papers, chose my colors, and the result is ah-maa-zing!!
