Even if this blog is mainly about watercolor sketching, it happens that we need / we want to use other tools, along with watercolor in a mixed media approach, or on their own. ☺️
The “Drawing” category will allow me to discuss these other techniques with you.
Moreover, I started some really fun experiments, using fountain pen filled with waterproof ink on a wet paper, midway between line sketching and watercolor. We could talk about that too! 😉
At last, even if I don’t use colored pencils very often, I sometimes like their predictability.
They allow us to darken a bit here and there, to add a bit of color and… you know exactly how the result will be. You can grow your sketch as you go, as you want. I obviously love watercolor because it is used to surprised us but, sometimes, using pencils is a relief. 😌
Once again, water can be added to the mix to a more fun and more close to watercolor approach. Using watercolor pencils, wetting the sketch with water afterward – (or sketching on a wet wash with a watercolor pencil) are options to explore too.
It would be a shame to exclude all these sketching techniques from this creating place, isn’t it?! 😝😉
