Illustration 2 (watercolor)
This is the first piece I've ever successfully accomplished. I remember playing with it when I was in high school. I hated it at that time, I simply didn't know how to use it. But I was surprised how fast I caught up to speed with just one assignment. I guess all I've learned from this school really paid off. The further understanding of color, the painting techniques from oil and gouache really helped me develop a good foundation.
This assignment was to develop a layout design for any store you desire. I got the idea of animals playing with the strings that could attach to the actual rope handle itself, hence a pet shop.
I used the salt technique for the background green and painted the animals with more red or violet depending on which the background color, green or yellow, it was against.
