The Stingrays

Year 10

water colour, posca markers, prisma pencils on paper

40 x 30 cm

This term we explored underwater themes and mixed media. I worked with water colours for the background to create a wonderful whirl of colours, then used prisma pencils to add texture, colour and patterns, as well as depict animals. Finally, I used posca markers to add finer detail and build up the layers. I wanted to keep my work in greens and blues, and rather than picking lots of different underwater animals, I chose stingrays. I like the intricate details on their backs and how they appear to travel up the picture plane.
