Making of a Fortune

"The Teacup Tub"
Graphite, Watercolor, Decoupage and Acrylics
on archival bristol board.

I love that the fortune cookies are printed on both sides. When one side fails to reveal a good fortune I use the other. Thought it might be interesting if I documented the painting process on a regular illustration.

Many fortunes to choose from.

Planning the drawing before the
fortune is pasted.

Paste the fortune and draw around it.
