Today was a great lesson! For the first time ever I used pen to create a base drawing instead of using pencil. I found working with pen made me work faster, which was really surprising. The initial quick sketch was just roughed out using a pencil then we went over the lines using a pen. It helped take some of the fear factor out of diving straight in with pen. We then put a watercolour wash over the top and slowly built up the colour. I have posted Wellington Boots under the Watercolour Paintings tab.
I had some time to spare as I finished early so my art teacher said I had time to do some more paintings. A friend had brought in an illustration of a glass jar with Cranberries in it. So, I decided to do a painting of that. I ended up in fact doing two paintings of the jar as I got carried away! I have posted Glass Jars I & II under the Sketches tab. I see them as fun doodles, although my art teacher and fellow class mates thought they were really good.
