Mixed Media Toucan with Eulalia Mejia

 Hello and welcome to my craft-room blog, 

This week I've been enjoying getting into some of the classes from Art Bundle For Good #6. The first one was with Eulalia Mejia from South America and I had a wonderful time!

I loved the gorgeous colours in this split complimentary scheme and it was fun to use several different media - Eulalia started with acrylic paint which I subbed with gouache to give me the range of colours I needed, then we added interest and texture by making lots of little marks with coloured pencils, finishing off by adding more details with paint pens. 

Eulalia showed how to take just the three colours (pink/red, yellw-green and blue-green) and mix with black and white to create tones, shades and tints to give variation and interest.

I really fell in love with Eulalia's style and use of colour, here's a link to her website if you would like to check it out. 

Thanks for popping in today, see you again soon :)
