That was enlightening. To think I thought you did all those fine lines with some special pen all this time.

Lilla Pájer said...

Very beautiful! May I ask what kind of paint are you using? Is it gouache or acrylic? It seem to cover so well! When I use gouache it is always more transparent somehow. Thanks in advance! Greetings from Hungary, Lilla :)

Fascinating and transporting and wonderful! Such a magical little horse...LOVE him! The black is so rich and dense...is that ink or gouache? Thanks ever so much for making this video. More, MORE!! I absolutely adore your work, Yelena!

yelena bryksenkova said...

thank you for the positive feedback, everyone! i'll try to do more stuff like this in the future.

lilla and pattie:
for the dark color i used windsor & newton tube watercolor in payne's gray (i always use this instead of black - it has much more dimension), and for the red a mix of crimson "leningrad" cake watercolor and process white designer's gouache.

Hi Yelena,

I love your work and would like to make a commitment to drawing and painting this new year.

Seeing your process is very helpful.

I know you used a pigma micron pen, water colour and gauche.

What about choice of paper, paint brushes and pencils?

With thanks in advance,

Jade - Sydney

hi jade,
i'm glad this was helpful, thanks for watching! i'm not fussy about materials. my favorite paper is the strathmore 200 series watercolor paper; i use plain BIC mechanical pencils, and my brushes are usually the least expensive princeton/cotman/windsor & newton watercolor brushes that i can find, which i replace every couple of months.
