I wanted to keep going with the different color palettes. Today I made this one. I’m still working with watercolor pencils because they are easy to take with you from room to room and sit in a comfortable chair while listening to the TV or whatever.
I’m still at it with my watercolor pencils. I decided to try something different. Vincent Van Gogh is my all time favorite artist. I wanted to use his self portrait color pallet as inspiration for a portrait I made. I wanted a more abstract look to the portrait. I really like the soft colors I […]
Phew, I had also started another drawing for testing out my Faber Castell watercolor pencils. I started the sketch on 8/31/21, the day after yesterday’s drawing. Anyway, I made some mistakes that I can’t fix because the pencils stained the paper and it would just not lift. I didn’t go all in with her hair. […]
I got some watercolor pencils. I was super excited. However, when they arrived, they were not marked watercolor pencils. I started to swatch them, and they didn’t do much. Some did, some didn’t. I decided to paint anyway. Some of the pencils do dissolve a little when I added water. I ended up damaging the […]
I made another painting today. I used Kalour 72 watercolor pencils. I really liked a lot of the colors in this set, but, the purples weren’t as dark as I wanted. The yellows were really vibrant, and one of the pinks, OMG, I love it! So far, I really love this set. I didn’t have […]
I got a 72 set of watercolor pencils. I was so excited to use them. I immediately started a new drawing for these pencils and started painting. I didn’t even make any swatches. It was a mistake. I took the yellow and it was so yellow! I was not used to that amount of pigment. […]
I love today’s drawing. I bought some new watercolor pencils. I regret not buying more colors. This one only has two browns, which makes hair difficult for me at the moment. I used a few yellows, reds oranges and my two browns for the hair. I should start adding purple and blue as well. Next […]
Even though my challenge ended, I continue to draw. I’ll keep posting as well. This was my attempt today.
Only because I’m extra, I did another painting today. I started it last night, but painted the majority today. I am so in love with this painting. I do think I need to think more about color and background before I start the painting, but, I love this one!
Woo hoo! I did it. Even though I got side tracked with not feeling well. I did discover my watercolor pencils. Which I now love. The less setup and cleanup, the more likely I am to be able to draw and paint. I could cover my drawing with color and take a break and layer […]
