Big Comfy Cake

Hello precious Readers! 
I am sharing another painting today that I did for a good friend.  I used the image I did for Whimsy called, "Big Comfy Cake".   The image is on water colour paper and then painted with my artist quality paints.  I really love to water colour as much as I love to use Copics!  If I had to decide between the two I don't think I could.  Both mediums are so fun, yet sooo vastly different to work with.  

While the watercolours blend themselves practically, the Copics take a lot of getting used to at first to get a good blend.  And I don't think I could do the sky as I did here using Copics.  Maybe some super skilled Copic user could.  But the soft and seamless blend of pink to blue would be really hard to obtain using Copic markers.  

I had a lot of fun doing the grass.  It was actually quite challenging but in the end I think I pulled it off ok.  I'm still no expert water colourist, that is for sure, but every time I paint I get a little bit better than before. 

 I will leave you with pictures of my latest rubber release from Whimsy Stamps.  
Thanks for coming by today!
