The Peach Gelatos® is a really versatile color. It is great for creating skin tones and background washes. But pair it with other pastels and/or more intense colors and metallics and you can open up a whole new world of possibilities as I explored in the above piece.
To make a similar piece, you'll need the following:
Others: Mixed Media paper, Paint brushes, Stamp
Let me walk you through my steps.
Start by generously rubbing Peach Gelatos on the mixed media paper to create a base wash.
Start adding layers of colors with other Gelatos colors. Blend them with water.
Keep adding more Gelatos colors, blending some without water and some with water. Add more Peach to the mix.
Tie the colors in with Chalkboard Paint and Gesso.
Use stencils to pencil in patterns. Color around the patterns.
Free hand a butterfly or another motif with a paint brush and chalkboard paint to create a focal point for your piece. Make marks with Peach Gelatos.
Stamp a few words.
Here's a close up of my finished piece.
I hope you enjoyed today's tutorial and would try pairing your pastel Gelatos with other colors!
