Today I worked on my Diva Challenge piece for this week. The theme was "peace" - and you could draw anything you wanted... as long as it stayed within that theme.
I decided that I wanted to try out TomBow Markers for their watercolour capabilities. So... I drew this first tile using TomBow Markers (except for the splattering which I couldn't get to happen with the markers so I used my Koi Watercolours).
Then after it dried... I tangled it. I used some pens I have which are .04mm to create the tangles. I also used a few gel pens for accents and a grey marker for shading
For me... this piece begins in the top left corner... with darkness and blood being spilled... in the lower right corner there is love - and the little faces creating a chain are all focusing on the peace signs in the centre. I added tipple in to the peace signs to create a grounded feeling but also to give the lightness of bubbles... so the viewer can decide which they are.
