I’ve been continuing to explore ways of combining Faber Castell Goldfaber Aqua markers with watercolour and I’m absolutely loving the colour combos and the fun textures that I’m achieving.
I particularly like the way the transparent pastel hues from the markers (such as Lavender Light) are visible under the granulation of the watercolour washes and I love the backruns/blossoming of the dye-based markers.
Most of the sketches on these pages are done with both markers and watercolour. But look out for a few sketches that are just watercolour (with or without ink) and a few sketches that are marker without watercolour. You’ll also see the two colour sketches using the Pilot Brush Pens that I’ve shared previously.
In the full double-page spread collection below you will find…
A few teacups – this is a paint-only OCR (Old Country Roses). BTW my latest Teacup and Teapot Project is on hold at the moment.
Lots of colour swatches – looking at Colour and Value at the moment in my Watercolour On Location course has been a prompt. This particular collection of swatches has some marker colour under the watercolour.
And a new palette from Aquarius – more about that soon.
Okay… now it’s time to share all the pages I’ve done in the last few weeks (less a few pages as part of my recent Interior Designer workshop).
I hope that you enjoyed seeing all my recent sketches… it’s certainly a lot of work to keep up to date! 🙂
I’m doing so much everyday sketching lately and I’m just loving all the experimentation. I hope that you are having as much fun sketching at the moment as I am!
