Here’s a recent bunch of sunflowers, rendered in mixed media.
You can see some of the supplies I used in this closeup: I use a mix of colored pencils across different brands, most but not all of them water-soluble. A China marker, ink added with a dip nib and watercolor make up the rest of what I used.
Here are some sunflowers from last year, for comparison. These include crayons and colored pencils over watercolor.
My work has definitely gotten more “mixed-media” over the years. For comparison, here are two sunflower pieces, from way back in 2009. The first one is in pencil, the second one is with markers.
