Howdy all. I joined a swap on iatcs and the directions were to trace our own hand and art it up. I love to draw castles so here you go. I first painted the background, then cut out the hand. From there I try to find an image that the background might suggest. Pop, out came a castle. I put down some white oil pastel, to seal off the background colors. On top of the white goes more white, this time white gouache which is opaque watercolor. Ink and colored pencils and some watercolor on top of that.
