Here is the piece before painted. I'm getting into using wax in my illustrations. All of that texture you see is wax. When the water color is painted over it, obviously the waxed areas stay whatever color was under them. So cool.
Here are a batch of patterns I worked on this Summer for my internship. They match the Headdress pieces I posted earlier. The patterns are meant to acompany the headdresses on diaries and accordion folders. I'll post those shortly.
