This is the second edition of the Beth/Jason collaborative painting series (see the first episode here).
To say we have two totally different artistic styles is an understatement. Jason= zombies, bloody beasts, ninjas, etc. Beth = flowers, leaves, Tuscan scenes
But we have one thing going for us in that he likes to draw, and I like to paint.
This is Jason's drawing, on super heavy watercolor paper. Notice the mushrooms. That would be a detail I probably wouldn't have thought of.
Here is my first layer of paint. It was like coloring in a coloring book! This is the best part as far as I'm concerned.
After I was done painting, Jason went back with some pens and watercolor pencils and added details.
Ta-Da! This was Jason's mom's Christmas present. Last year, Jason painted her a robot with a machine gun (link here), so I'm thinking she might like this better. Although, she did laugh when she first saw this, so I'm hoping that's a good thing. . . ?
