Thank you very much!

It's just simple woodburning, I sketch out the image onto the wood and using a wood burning pen (which has a metal tip that gets hot enough to burn into the wood and comes in different replaceable sizes and styles) I follow along the sketch I've made. After I burn the wood I erase any extra lines and sand it down (sometimes I sand before sketching if the wood is rough or has sap on it) so it's ready for color. This one was done with watercolors. I also use acrylic, gauche and colored pencil. There's a polyethylene spray I use to coat all my boards so it prevents water damage and the like, it's a semi-gloss so that's what makes it a bit 'shiny'.

Watercolor and colored pencil doesn't get as glossy a finish as other paints however.

The pens can get pretty costly, but I don't use a sander. Just different grits of sandpaper.
