Current Teacups: Colored pencils and watercolour


July 27, 2022 | 1 Remark

Final month I painted a heap of watercolour teacups to complete off the 30×30 Direct Watercolour problem and again in April/Might I had enjoyable doing a little CP teacups. So lastly, within the final week or so I’ve gotten round to experimenting with colored pencils (CPs) and watercolour! 

Choosing the proper teacup for these experiments is vital – a sample with a lot of completely different colors however not too laborious. Typically the outcomes will not be what I used to be intending at the beginning however I merely alter mid-sketch and do one thing completely different (eg. add ink or white gel pen).

Direct watercolour continues to be my most popular option to sketch teacups nevertheless it’s at all times enjoyable to attempt new issues!

As talked about in earlier articles there are lots of variables to steadiness when combining CPs and watercolour and I do know that that is serving to my watercolour. I’ve to be tremendous intentional in regards to the consistency of water and pigment in my washes and likewise cautious with each stroke in order that I obtain the correct quantity of ‘resist’ from the CPs.

BTW I talked about this and did a mini demo within the last Livestream from Watercolour that I hosted this morning. You probably have enrolled in my Watercolour course at any time you’ll be able to see the replay in Part R207.

With none additional ado, listed here are all my current teacup sketches. Take pleasure in!
