Day 12 – Home from Mom’s and I am not behind – Yea!
I sketched from an image on my camera while waiting at the doctor’s office with my Mom. I recently bought two packs of watercolor markers from the clearance aisle at Michael’s. I have wanted to try them out for a while. They are pretty pricey too. Thought I’d give them a try with some ink.
I am not finished with this sketch but really enjoyed the loose feeling. I couldn’t control the color and the ink is wherever you touch the pen to paper. Since I couldn’t really see the details of the image, I focused on the shapes.
Then I decided to do something with harder edges. I have this thing when I am painting – I can not seem to leave an edge alone. Well I simply had trouble blending these markers even with a little water. It didn’t help that I was working on my lab and the lid from my water bottle. This is what I came up with and I really like it except for the horizon in the center. The orange marker was very bright and I attempted to cover it up. I am going to do a painting from this.
