A Brush with Water
Keeping with my watercolor pencil theme, I tried a new technique today. I used a General's Sketch & Wash pencil to do this torso study and then used a brush and water for the washes, just like a watercolor pencil. I went back in with a wet tip on the pencil for some darker highlights. I like this technique and it is a challenge for me because I feel as if I have a bit more control over the regular charcoal and pencil. As this is all new to me, I will continue trying the various techniques depending on my mood for the day. Hope you enjoyed the drawing and that you might spend a few moments doing something that brings you happiness as well.
