Coloring Outside the Box

Hi, it’s Tessa from How To Make Art, and I’m going to show you a fun new way to color your art pieces today!

Lately, I have been drawing a lot of animals with my Permawriters.  Here are two examples of bears that I drew recently on my Yasutomo and Company Hosho Sketch Paper:

I have been trying to think of new, outside-the-box ways to color in my drawings, so this is what I did while experimenting and painting to color these in:
I used my Yasutomo and Company Sumi-E Watercolor Set, which I am in LOVE with!  The colors are so vibrant and creamy – really fun to use!  For the first one, I added some extra elements outside the picture area, and with the second one, I used giant dots to fill in the picture area.  It was really fun to try something new with my artmaking, and the possibilities for coloring outside the box are truly endless!  I hope you will have fun trying this out in your studio!
Thanks for creating with me!
