Hi everyone, we are channeling "Strawberry Fields Forever" with this word art inspiration. Follow artist Mou Saha as she teaches step by step how to create vibrant word art using Goldfaber Aqua Dual Markers.
Mixed Media paper
Start with hand-lettering the Beatles song lyrics using Castell® 9000 Graphite Pencil – HB. Around the lyrics, sketch some strawberry vines.
Trace the block hand-lettered lyrics with Goldfaber Aqua Dual Markers # 128 Light purple Pink and 121 Pale Geranium Lake.
Color the strawberries with the brush tip of the Goldfaber Aqua Dual Markers #116 Apricot, 121 Pale Geranium Lake and #122 Brilliant Red. Color the vines with Goldfaber Aqua Dual Marker # 171 Light Green.
The Goldfaber Aqua Dual Markers are water-soluble and can be blended for a softer look but also look vibrantly beautiful undiluted.
Color the leaves with Goldfaber Aqua Dual Marker # 163 Emerald Green.
Create some flowers with Goldfaber Aqua Dual Markers #109 Dark Chrome Yellow for centers and #272 Warm Grey III for petals.
Sprinkle some diamond shapes with Goldfaber Aqua Dual Marker #128 Light Purple Pink to fill up space.
Add details to the vines, leaves, and strawberries with PIitt Artist Pens #264 Dark Phthalo Green and 175 Dark Sepia. The India ink of the Pitt Artist Pens do not blend with water-soluble inks of the Goldfaber Aqua Dual Markers making it easy to add details.
Draw a scalloped border with the fine point, hard felt nib (.6 mm) of the Goldfaber Aqua Dual Marker #122 Brilliant Red to finish.
I hope you enjoyed this tutorial and have fun with your song lyrics this summer!
