Hey You There!!!.....



Winter will soon be here so I thought I'd get ready too!!! This is painted with watercolour pencils, one of my favourite mediums, designed by Tina Sue Norris . I love the way this turned out...it was too easy though!!! A red, a light orange with a darker orange were used to create the values for the feathers with a few accents of french grey tipped with chinese white. French grey and chinese white was all that was needed for the branches. The background is simply the french grey patted onto the surface. Speaking of surface, you should try MultiMedia board. I've used it before but this was the first time for watercolour pencils.....now I'm officially hooked. Do be careful though, the board can crack and break very easily....did it, done it!!!!

  3. I'm such a sucker for cardinals! Lovely picture, and the swan too. I'm just starting to play with watercolor pencils and I love seeing what others do with them.

  4. Very nice. Your white pencil work really finished it off. I've never used this board. I really haven't used any boards, mostly just flower pots, my paper journals and wood pieces.
