mostly Prismacolors, lately (actually getting transition & healthcare stuff done too, but i try not to think about that!)
Art Exercises from a BookOne of the books in my stack is Art Escapes, by Dory Kanter. She's got lots of fun ideas. One of them involves taking your watercolors & separating them into 4 triads of colors, so that you can take just 3 on sketch trips with you instead of a whole collection.
Watercolors to Colored PencilsBut i want to use a dry medium, & colored pencils are my choice. So i've been trying to interpret her colorwheels & Provence sketches into the triads of mostly Winsor & Newton watercolors.
|In these two, i am trying out my matches, trying to get it right. To get to this point was the work of Sunday afternoon & evening.|
Purpose: Portability + Function
|First i did the little scenes on the right, including one where i mixed up triad colors. i'm very happy with the Sun triad i came up with, but a couple of the others don't look right, so i tried again on the right. Both pages took about 4 hours.|
