Hi Stormy

No big deal - my name is misspelled all the time, including from people I have known for a long time. I just thought it would help you and others if I clarified.

Teri (with1r) is on the forum often and will see your message. Or you can always private message her here if you like.

Hi @Appelmoes -

OHHHHH!!! Sonia.

That is crazy good and I love how you are using the grid to draw / complete one square at a time.

Please post a few more progress shots as you continue to work on this.

You are an amazing artist. And that is the truth.

Thank you Terri,
it means a lot coming from you. Did you see all the different measurements marks? Plus I started at the bottom accidentally, don’t ask me how, because my intention was to start at the top left so I flipped the picture in my ipad, I even wrote the words up and down on the board it’s taped on … double sigh! :crazy_face:

8x10 Mushroom on 9x12 Strathmore Serie 400 Drawing Paper smooth surface. This was started 2 mounts ago but, due to others priorities, it had to wait. It’s not easy to get back into the spirit of this drawing after so long.

Hi Pierre -

What you’ve done is looking really good. I know what you mean about having a hard time getting into the flow again. But this is definitely worth the effort.

@PiDo,

Once you get the pencil in your hand and do a couple of strokes, you’ll start getting into it until finished. The tree bark is awesome already! I can’t wait to see it completed!

Today I finished my first ever watercolor pencil drawing/painting. I used a reference photo from Anna Mason, from when I was taking watercolor classes there.

5x7 on 300 lb Arches watercolor paper using Faber-Castell watercolor pencils.

Terri W2Rs,
Oh my goodness gracious, how beautiful!
How do you like WC pencils compared to regular WC paint? You have such amazing control of WC paints that I can’t wait to hear what you have to say!

Hi Sonia -

This was a lot like drawing with regular colored pencils rather than like painting. I watched Matts watercolor pencil lesson of 3 sunflowers before doing this, and that was helpful.

I did the leaves first. I put a base coat down with a couple colors and then blended with water. Reviewed what it looked like and kept adding layers. Then I moved on to the yellow of the tulips, doing the entire tulip in yellow and building up layers for the different values. I always started light, working my way to dark (which is what I do with watercolor paints.) Since yellow is a lighter color than red, the red could easily sit on top of the yellow. The red details are drawn without applying any water.

I’ll have to see with different reference photos if I take the same approach. So far, so good.

Terri with 2 r’s


This is my reference photo (which was actually a realistic watercolor painting) and my drawing before adding the red details.

Miss Terri;
Your tulips are absolutely beautiful!
I hope to paint that well one day ( with lots of practice).
Have you ever considered selling your art?
I think you could make a living with your beautiful art.

Beautiful “DRAWING”!

I’ve had people ask if they can buy my work but they all took a lot of time to create . So I don’t sell my work. And I don’t want my hobby to become a job. But that was kind of you to ask.
