Mixed media watercolour and colour pencil art

You may have noticed I have taken a bit of a hiatus from art and blogging.  It’s been like six months since my last blog post!   I went on an epic two month overseas holiday. I did have the best intentions to draw and update my social media everyday ha ha… but… anyway I do have a really good tan…

Anyone whose followed my blog for a little while will know that watercolour is my nemesis.  I have a bit of a love-hate relationship going with it.  So I’ve decided to commit to watercolour based mixed media for a while and see if I can get more comfortable with it.

Here are the results of my first four attempts.  A bit of a mixed bag! The first one I did was my favourite by far.  I think because it was “just an experiment” I was much looser and relaxed with it.  I put a bit of pressure on myself for the next couple (and used the GOOD paper) and I think as a result I was a bit more uptight which shows in the end result.   The last one I disliked so much I ended up giving up on it completely!   "Amara" - watercolour and colour pencil painting"Bridgit" - watercolour and colour pencil painting"Hedvig" - watercolour and colour pencil painting
