Gum leaves are a favourite subject of mine; their sweeping curves are a joy to capture in a dance of pencil lines. These had their beautiful bonnet shaped flowers on show. I picked them while I was out walking with our dogs. I also collected some with gum nuts, which I’ve drawn in graphite pencil – it’s in the little gallery below.
This one above is a print from a tiny watercolour I did. It has a touch of colour dabbed on it in the Procreate app. I’m in the process of applying more watercolour, and a bit of oil pastel to the print; as well as using some water-soluble pencils – I often get the colour from these pencils by wiping a wet brush across the tips of them. I’ll also finish my original watercolour .
The Canson 220gsm drawing paper is proving to be excellent to print on, and takes light water washes well. The Epson printer inks I use don’t run. I also print on some lovely watercolour papers…
I’m working on a few miniature watercolours, (among other things) which I’ll also scan and print – and perhaps rework… Plan to share them soon. I hope to open my little art shop this week; I make mention of it here. Thanks for stopping by! *To enlarge the images below, please tap on a pic. More info on the captions.
