Line and wash and some Gellyroll pen seemed like the best way to save this.
Using a Pigma Micron, I picked out outlines of tree trunks and foliage. NOTE: I did this on Cold Press Arches watercolor, which has a rough enough texture that it RUINS the fabric tip of a Micron pen. I always save pens that are running out of ink for jobs like this, because they'll be worthless after the line work is done.
Then I went through the painting with the Micron and added texture and shading. I think I could have stopped here, but I knew I could add some interest with Gellyroll gel ink pens.
I couldn't get a very good photograph or scan, though for once, I did capture some of special effects. Too much so. The Silver Shadow Green ink only stands out like this with certain lighting.
I used Stardust blues, purples and greens in the water, and in real life, the water now sparkles as water does in the light. I used flourescent vermillion to add a sunlight glow, and metallic purple for shadows. The Silver Shadow Green gives a phosphorescent look that changes as you move the painting in the light--almost like those 3D stickers.
This would qualify as Mixed Media at this point. It doesn't look too good in the photo, but I think it's much improved in the real thing. Did I save it? Hmmmm. It's still not one of my favorites.
