Watercolour, 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.
