Fiddling around a bit on some scrap paper, making some bookmarks, letting myself explore.
Micron ink pens and Windsor and Newton watercolor pans. I really enjoyed this combination.
Working on the second of three postcards for Project: Postcard with the Albany County Historical Association.
Spent the bulk of the day finding shade and painting today! I am really enjoying allowing the watercolors to work their magic. Where I am typically tighter in my drawing style when using ink pens and then watercolor over the top, I find using just watercolor and brush allows me to be more gestural and simplistic. It’s like a breath of fresh air, a relief (sigh).
Took a little while to finish this postcard/small painting with all of the intricate details in the ink work. But alas, it is finished and available in my Etsy shop.
I am really enjoying the experimentation process of watercolor lately. You can find this postcard in my Etsy shop!
