Featured Artist: Tillith
Hi, I’m Tillith! My real name is Isabella and I’m a self taught artist from Germany. I’ve been drawing since I was a child, back when I wanted to become an Astronaut. Unfortunately I’ve not become an Astronaut but my obsession with space is still growing and I use it a lot in the themes of my work. I also share my painting and drawing processes on YouTube and because I love to discover new art materials (just like you), I also create art supply reviews video there too. Come and take a look.
Challenge: Space Mask
Our featured artist this month dreamed of being an astronaut and this month we are asking you to use these supplies to transport yourself into another galaxy. In space no one can hear you paint.
What was in the box?
Royal Talens Van Gogh Watercolour Paint – http://amzn.to/2kLHMpC
Van Gogh watercolours are brilliant, intense, and very transparent. Every colour in the range features the highest degree of light-fastness, ensuring that your work displays the same colour decades later. Due to the purity of the colours they are also extremely easy to mix and wash to easily create the subtlest of differences in shade and tone.
Pentel Correct Express Pen – http://amzn.to/2ydpeUR
Use it to correct any mistakes or to quickly add bold highlights to your work. The opaque white fluid offers excellent coverage and the fine metal tip provides an accurate application. It boasts super quick and even drying, that creates a flat surface for neat corrections and a smooth finish to your work.
Koh-I-Noor Mondeluz Water Colour Pencil – http://amzn.to/2xDay1W
These water colour pencils have a high concentration of pigment and therefore an excellent durability and light-fastness. Mondeluz pencils are extremely soluble and a perfect aquarelle technique can be easily achieved with only few drops of water.
