New Piece

Carrying on with the experimentation, I've decided to take a break from using tea and its monochromatic disadvantage, and instead I have mixed graphite with plain old liquid watercolour. After looking at the work by artists in previous blog posts, I have created this piece (below) with allusions to their techniques, e.g. building layers, wet-in-wet, line and ink etc.

So I began by creating the hand on the left using graphite pencil. I decided that I'd focus highly on tonal work in this hand, then use watercolour for the rest of the image. I had to learn to be patient when building up the layers on the face as I often found myself blotting the colours that blurred into others. After completing the face and hair, I used a black gel pen to create the outline of a shirt.

It got a fair response on my Facebook page, which I'm always so pleased to see!
Hope you like it!
