Watercolour vs Marker for an interior scene

March 8, 2013 | Leave your thoughts





Sketching a few interiors today (for a comission) and thought I would do a comparison between watercolour and markers. Both were done in a similar time frame – ie. a rapid rate. I scanned the base line drawing of the watercolour and then printed it out for the marker version (on bond paper)

I use my copic markers in the same manner as I use my brush – very similar gesture and movements…but instead of mixing different colours I am madly scrambling to find the new colour, put on the lid of the colour just used and then open the right end of the the new colour (I am using the wedge end on this sketch)
