Meredith Design

Archive for September 2011

Well I’m back in Japan. To read updates on my recent travels and adventures, see my Japan blog – meredithjapan.wordpress.com. One awesome extra in visiting home was it gave me the opportunity to bring back ALL of my copics and my watercolor supplies. Work starts up again on Monday for me but I think having supplies with me will help me stay focused on practicing my techniques.

Below is a new piece I just finished with copics today and, to be honest, I really like it right now. This is a rare moment. I’d like to share it with you before I start to loathe it. I’m still hesitant to mess with backgrounds. Maybe I should just do some scenery practice for a while until I get the hang of it. I remember reading from professional painters that usually, the background comes first, figure second.

I hope everyone in the northern hemisphere had a sweet summer. Mine flew by way to fast. Guess that means I’m having too much fun.

Copic sketch markers and some white acrylic paint

With love – M
