At Art Group this week we were looking at Water Colour Pencils and how versatile but manageable they are.
In order to demonstrate three different techniques I did three different picture. This is one of them.
With this picture I began simply by using the brush and taking the pigment straight from the Pencil tip and then brushing it onto the paper in order to create the duck.
For the water I used a combination of “tipping’ this being where I took the pigment straight from the tip of the pencil using a brush and of course bleeding where I dampened the paper and then added the pigment and also colouring straight onto the paper with the pencils and then brushing water onto it.
By using these techniques I could achieve the fluidity or motion of the water.
