Flower Friends

Woman with FlowersWatercolour, gouache, Inktense pencil, and graphite pencil, on Art Spectrum, textured A4 “Draw and Wash” paper.

Day 30 of the World Watercolour Month challenge.

Began with an idea, and a quick trip around the paper with a black Inktense paper. Then brushed on washes of watercolour, and a little white gouache – mostly on the face. Added touches of graphite pencil here and there.

Knowing I can bring in some white gouache to tame my lines helps me relax with the initial sketch.

Ah, lots of line work; back to comfortable territory! This technique is probably how I like to mostly work; with visits to other ways in between.

Back tomorrow with the last watercolour of the challenge!

Cheerio, till then.
