Ink and watercolour at Pelican Waters forext

Can't work out how to get my oils to the part I wanted to paint (I'll work it out one day!) so went with copics and watercolour.

Lovely warm day. Sat on a park bench the council has put there right by the water - beautiful spot off the main walkway - you can stay there for hours and never hear or see another person. I'm thinking of moving in...

Main thing that I learnt today -if you are going to sit on a council bench for a few hours TAKE A PILLOW!!!! Argh my aching.... you know where

Sketch for shapes with a thin copic.



Textures and light/shade with a thicker copic



Parts of my anatomy going numb by now....

Wash of colour



If I can't get my oils there next time I might just use watercolour and leave the copics at home.

Oh, we took lots of photos of the area - they will be in the reference library soon

Re: Ink and watercolour at Pelican Waters forext

Eliza, that's a delightful picture! You were really patient with the drawing. And I like the wash of color a lot.

As it happens, I spent the week working in watercolor too, for a similar reason: I didn't want to lug oils around New York City. (I posted a couple watercolor sketches in the watercolor forum.) I do have a wheely thing that helps transport my oils. But I don't know if you'd be able to wheel things to that lovely park of yours. It sounds like a rather long walk.

Anyway, congratulations on a lovely picture!
