Illustration Friday: Superstition
Tempra Paint Batik
This week's theme is "Superstition". In Korea, magpies represent good luck. Supposedly if you see a magpie in the morning you will hear good news or receive visitors.
Method: I drew the bird on heavy paper. Next I painted all the areas with tempra paint except where I wanted it to be black. When the paint was dry, I covered everything with black ink. When the ink was dry, I put the picture under running water and rinsed off the ink. The ink washes off of the paint and sticks to the paper where there is no paint. After the picture dried, I went back and painted over some of the areas that looked too faded.
