Experimenting with Technique

These two watercolor sketches are experiments where I'm trying to loosen up a bit.

The first was using a 1" flat.  My goal was to only suggest the foliage without getting too detailed.  I also decided to try and mix my own greens from the primaries rather than using a tube green as a base to add other colors to.

Working in the Stillman & Birn Alpha journal using W&N watercolors.

Painted first and then used pen and ink (Pilot Prera and Lexy Gray ink) for detailing.




This one was trying a different blue/yellow combination for foliage as well as suggestive brush strokes.  Definitely different for me.

Also worked in the Alpha journal painted first and then some pen and ink as above.
