Sail On and Thank You

I'm sharing another watercolor project from Brandy today.  I've known Brandy's talent for over a decade now, but she still blows me away from time to time.  I gasped aloud when we sent over this photo of a card made to say thank you to a co-worker and her dad for a kindness bestowed.  Given, the stamped image is a old Heartfelt Creations stamp, so the detailing and quality of the image is spectacular.  However, the shading - in the waves, in the sail, in the clouds, in the sunset.  It is all so beautiful.  This image was colored with Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers.  The technique with these markers is slightly different, but very much the same as what you would do with traditional watercolors and a clean brush.  Here's a video of Jennifer McGuire demonstrating these markers.

I hope this brightens your day and makes you long for a clear sunset overlooking the water.  That's what I think of when I look at this card!
