Medium: Mixed media
Jess’s technique for mixed media is to first create underpaintings with a sketch using a digital stylus in Procreate. Then using digital watercolor brushes, she layers blotches of color to achieve desired values and contrast for the particular artwork. After completing this, she has that printed as a Giclee on watercolor rag paper, from which she adds the top layer and details with physical watercolors. Jess is fond of allowing the watercolor to pool, swell and saturate pieces of the underpainting, achieving a translucent, unique and distinctively modern look.
