Sydney Tatsumi – Sisters

Media: Gouache/colored pencil
Grade: 10th grade

The piece is based off of a picture of my sister I when we visited Japan. We’re half Japanese, half Taiwanese, and have been lucky enough to be exposed to our culture by going to Japan and Taiwan every year. I used colored pencil and gouache, first by using colored pencil to shade in the faces, and then using gouache for the background, hair, and clothes. I then went in with a fine tip brush to put in details on the face, and added some shading with colored pencil over the clothes.
