Re: Ulla's Adventures with Coloured Pencils

Thank you for the links and the helpful hints, Vivien! Actually I prefer "Zeichenkarton" (drawing cardboard, Bristol paper) when working with my Polychromos colored pencils, but when I use my watercolour pencils (Albrecht Durer/Faber-Castell) wet, I need watercolour paper. Ordinary cardboard paper would begin to buckle.

Re: Ulla's Adventures with Coloured Pencils

Great that you're doing color swatches for reference!!! I like your landscape. You will probably be happier building up the layers of watercolor slowly. At least that is how I usually work. I love that you are experimenting with different techniques.

Re: Ulla's Adventures with Coloured Pencils

Landscape, 2nd version

Sorry for doing a similar motive, I hope I am not boring you. This landscape is based on the colour burnt Siena (with the exception of the water and the sky, of course!). I tried to give some shape to the mountains, and to use different values.

Re: Ulla's Adventures with Coloured Pencils

This is an improved version. It is good that you tried it again to work on it. Good colours and shape in the distant hills. Nice foreground.

Re: Ulla's Adventures with Coloured Pencils

Not boring at all. It's great seeing what you are doing. The use of the burnt sienna to tie all the colors together seems to be a good one.

Re: Ulla's Adventures with Coloured Pencils

Furry creature

Did this a few days ago. It all began with the April Monthly class on how to paint fur over at the Watercolours forum. I had in my mind a furry creature hopping around. Did it with watercolour pencils washed, and when I had the creature I wanted it to put into some jungle surroundings. Worked it over with some dry coloured pencils.

Re: Ulla's Adventures with Coloured Pencils

Great job here. Tho' I have to admit, I would not like to meet your creature after dark. Those claws look a bit daunting.

Re: Ulla's Adventures with Coloured Pencils

He looks fun Ulla. Like the contrast in texture with him and the smooth background.

Re: Ulla's Adventures with Coloured Pencils

Thank you, Debby and Jacqui! Here's something where I've gone mad with colours:

Comments and critique are most welcomed!

Re: Ulla's Adventures with Coloured Pencils

Wow so vibrant and fun. Colour is good. Was this your watercolour pencils?

Re: Ulla's Adventures with Coloured Pencils

Thank you, Jacqui and RainySea for taking the time to look and to comment! Yes, I did this with watercolour pencils. At the moment I am trying to find out how to combine watercolour pencils and coloured pencils. And how to create rich colours (seems to depend from the amount of pressure you apply when drawing with the dry watercolour pencils).

Re: Ulla's Adventures with Coloured Pencils

Explosion of color! Cool!

Water color pencils can be layered just like regular colored pencils then washed. I've done that on a frog I was playing with. (Sorry no camera so can't show. ) I didn't have the correct shade of green so layered the watercolor pencils like I would colored pencils to get the shade of green I wanted plus shadowing, then added water with a water brush. Of course, I hadn't counted on the water changing the color so dramatically. So, it didn't end up the color I had. But, it was a rich deep green.

Re: Ulla's Adventures with Coloured Pencils

More nice pages! I like the furry critter - I think we have a whole herd of them in our yard at night.
