This isn’t great, but it’s not meant to be. I wanted to experiment and try a few things and see how it turned out.
Great job on this. I found it the most challenging of this course. Do you use one pen or different types?
Hi Dan -
What do you mean “it’s not great”. I’m totally loving all of your posts and hope you keep them coming.
I wish i didn’t do the promarker shading as the paper didn’t take the promarker well… i should have used watercolour… but going to draw it again and see how it comes out thank you though. Appreciate the encouragement
Yes, I can see now what you mean. I don’t even own any markers (yet). Watercolor is usually my preferred media for washes, or diluted ink makes for a nice wash also. Post your results, I love to compare it with the first one.
There comes a time where you have to stop watching everyone else drawing, reading about pen drawing and just go for it!! Really pleased how this has come out
Very nice! As my 12-year-old granddaughter tells me, “Nice crosshatching!” And hatching, too. I’m about to try pen and ink on a leaf and add a watercolor wash.
Thank you. Look forward to seeing your sketches
As far as I got. I didn’t love the colors in the leaf I chose, so I’ll keep looking! Our leaves are just now changing and falling.
Fantastic. Love it. Just throw some green on it and while wet dab with some brown… Then you can do a little extra again
Yup, you did great.
@Dannomiss89 and @robichon here’s a watercolor “study.” No ink yet, but I watched so many watercolor videos yesterday! I think I’ve made a breakthrough. This is not the same leaf, obviously. I’ll add minimal details when it’s dry.
I also switched watercolors. These are Windsor newton except the yellow which is Holbein gamboge nova.
This is incredible. Absolutely love it. Such a great job
Thank you, @Dannomiss89 !!! I had fun doing it. Your work has inspired me for sure!
Brenda - I’m really liking how you’re taking full advantage of the character of watercolors. Love the mix of intense fall colors that you’ve used. Looking forward to the completed image.
Thank you, Terri! I hope to finish it this afternoon sometime. I appreciate your support. Watercolor is a goal I have. Your work with watercolor has been an inspiration.
That is incredible. It looks so realistic. Honestly amazing. Not sure I could do that. Well done
Thanks so much @Dannomiss89 it didn’t dry as brilliant as I wanted, but I kinda love it. Compared to one I did a few days ago, it’s leaps and bounds better.
You should be proud of it. Great job. Love it.
