Copic Hillside Barns

I have had fun playing with my brayer the last few weeks but today decided to return to my beloved Copics.

I used two barns and the tree with the wheelbarrow from De Everything else in the scene is from Stampscapes.

As always, I started with Curious Cryogen White paper, stamping with Tsukineko Memento Tuxedo Black ink. The sky was done with an airbrush, everything else is individual marker work.

I have found that most people are just looking at the art rather than reading the text on my blog. So rather than giving you a big lengthy description of what markers I used where, I am including a picture of the markers used in this scene.

One thing I will say, E51 Milky White is a wonderful versatile color. Not only do I use it as sand, I used it over all of the grass to give an end of the season feel to the scene. Many times I have colored something and not been happy with the color, but adding E50, E51 or E52 can sometimes make a scene perfect.

If you have a question just leave me a comment and I will respond.
