Experimented with adding backgrounds to the previous drawings...
Julie With Rectangles (Watercolor, gouache, acrylic, and ProWhite on illustration board). A little homage to Klimt. It doesn't show up well in the photo, but I used metallic paint so it flickers in the light. Originally I had inked the creases of her dress with a nib and lots of directional lines but it created an odd pattern that didn't work so I covered it with a simple gouache rendering.
Cori (Watercolor, gouache, colored pencils, acrylic ink, and spray paint on illustration board). Had some interesting times with this one. I kept covering the surface with different materials (gouache, oil pastels, ink, etc.) and scrubbing them out. This final version is blue acrylic ink as the background base. I then covered it with white spray paint and scraped out parts to reveal the blue underneath. I like the textutre and random patterns.
Kate (Watercolor and ink on illustration board). I went with a simple background.
