Watercolour Series 6 by Karen Day

Hello Ai fans!
I have ventured into some watercolour artwork again... this time using WC Series 6 Set 2 - Sku#3498.  Both of the Series 6 sets depict a small town in the Engligh countryside, so I've used a couple of the images to create a small scene:
 I've used combination of both Marvy & Tombow watercolour markers, initially colouring the stamp of the houses in a dark brown.  Then I used the markers directly on the paper to add colour to the houses and to create the scenery around them.  I went back in with a wet paintbrush to soften the colour and move it around.  Here's a closeup:
These are such great stamp sets to work with, since they give you the foundation image, and then the colouring & background details are all up to you.  Art Impressions has a huge inventory of Watercolour Series sets that you can find on the website, here!
Happy watercolouring, everyone!
