Hey guys, today I have another fun project to share with you that I created for Tombow USA! What is it? Double Exposure Art! I really love creating paintings inspired by double exposure photography so I thought I’d show you an easy way to do that too!
A double exposure is the superimposition of two or more photo exposures to create a single image.
- Watercolor Paper
- Pencil (I like these MONO Drawing Pencils)
- Dual Brush Pens
- Blending Palette
- Paint Brush + Water
- White Gel Pen (this is optional, but I use the Uniball Signo)
- 1500 Colored Pencils (also optional)
Step one: Start off by drawing an outline of an image with a pencil. As I said, I’m using a MONO Drawing Pencil. I love these pencils for drawing, especially the pencils in the B range, as they’re nice and soft. Because we’ll be painting our image, I recommend using a heavy watercolor paper.
Step two: In the video below, I’m using Dual Brush Pens to paint a forest scene inside my girl outline.
Start by applying the Dual Brush Pen ink to the blending palette, then you can pick the ink up with a wet paint brush and they act just like watercolors! You’ll want to have a few different shades of your color, and starting with the lightest, paint trees at the top of your image. Switch to darker and darker shades as you work your way down.

And you’ve made a double exposure painting! YAY! To finish mine off, I used a few of Tombow’s 1500 colored pencils to darken the edges of the girl and fill in any gaps. These colored pencils layer so nicely over top of the Dual Brush Pens! I also used the white gel pen just to add in a few highlights. I was thinking they could be fireflies in my forest girl.
Leave me a comment telling me what you would paint inside of a double exposure piece!
