A change in direction

April 12, 2014 | 1 Comment

Just when you think I am heading a certain direction I completely change – ha! fun fun fun!

…. out goes the paint and in comes the watercolour pencils…

I am not a very good student… always doing my own thing….week 1 sketchbook skool the assignment was to document the week using pen sketches with no pencil… well I threw out the pen as well. Week 2 is realistic coloured pencils and tonight I am going crazy with quick loose bold watercolour pencils.

I have always loved watercolour pencils but prefer to use them in association with watercolour paint… so in the coming week I am going to work out a way of using them on their own that works for me. Of course, I am constantly inspired by my great friend Alissa Duke who is well and truly queen of the watercolour pencil!

  • You inspired me yesterday, Liz. I actually did a teeny sketch in my sketchbook! Thank you for that. I always love your pages, these included. The shoes are a cool idea. Have to agree with you on the shoe type "not quite doing it for" you. I couldn't wear those either. Feet way too sensitive.
