I'm going through a coloured pencils obsession at the moment.😊 This painting was done using my set of pencils from WH Smith that I've had for many years and I've added a touch of watercolour. Let me show you my process...
So I drew her out lightly with the burnt sienna pencil. You can see my faint outlines at the bottom of the picture where I've mapped out where I want her dress to be. If you draw very lightly you can (almost!) rub out the lines if you make a mistake.
I then darkened the lines and added some shading, all with the same pencil.
The next stage I added blue pencil spots to the dress. The blue watercolour wash was put on afterwards. You can do this because of the waxiness of the pencils, it acts like a resist as long as the watercolour wash isn't too dark.
Then I drew in some leaves and flower outlines with green, purple and pink pencils
and filled them in with green, purple and pink watercolour.
Her eyes and lips were painted with a tiny drop of watercolour and I filled in the trim of her dress in pink watercolour.
I hope you enjoyed seeing my process, if you have any questions I'd be very happy to answer.😊
I enjoyed this method and I'm sure to be using it again!
Have a lovely rest of the week!xx
