Graphite Pencil with a Watercolor Wash
I like to sketch. Actually that is a lie. I love to sketch. I started out with a pencil learning to draw, drawing in the negative space first to get your actual picture, than adding to or taking away from it to make the sketch the way you wanted it. Then I started with watercolors. Wow, how I loved those watercolors but they are so unforgiving. So if you make a mistake - consider it a part of the painting and just work it in somehow. Unlike acrylics, oils, prisma or pastel pencils there is no painting over to correct an error. So I learned to love my mistakes with watercolors . . . and so here I am. Today. Loving sketching and watercolors!
