My Wallet

21 Nov 2008

Just messing around with a watercolor set.

The drawing was done with a Pilot G2 gel pen and the color was applied using Cotman watercolors from Winsor & Newton.

The starburst effect is an artifact from the scanner in conjunction with the fact that my sketchbook is not exactly compatible with water media. I guess I’ll have to buy a watercolor pad for this kind of thing.

I’ve got a lot of work to do yet on my drawing though. A good painting starts with a good drawing, so I will stay focused on the drawing for the near future.
