This is absolutely AMAZING!!! I can't stop looking at it in awe! I literally created a deviant art account so I could follow you, haha! I'm just starting out learning watercolor/mixed media, may I ask, do you layer the watercolor first, then once that is all dry, then do you use the colored pencil over it all, for the more detailed, hard lines? Also may I ask another question, what type of colored pencil are you using?

Hello there! Welcome to DeviantART! :wave:
Thank you so much! I'm really glad you like my work! :bow:

Well, for this one, I think I used a brown colored pencil to outline the fox, then layers of watercolor. And in the background I only used watercolor, and the tip of my brush for the details.
But it all depends on the work, sometimes I do use colored pencils over the layers of the watercolor for the details.
Also, I am using normal Herlitz pencils (the pack with 24 pencils).

Thank you! Well, everything I know about art I've learned eider in school, or at home by practicing or experimenting. 
But it's an easy technique, it's working with thin watercolor layers. You just need a bit of patience to wait for the first layer to dry before you add the second or third.(or you can use a hair drier like I sometimes do, as long as you don't add too much water on paper)  (I usually don't do more than three layers) Hope this helps! :aww:
