I am on holidays at the moment and wanted to spend some time practicing with my Derwent watercolour pencils. 🎨
There is something that is so beautiful about watercolour. The way the paint blends with the water and creates a unique movement and texture every time. I really admire artists that work with this medium and create some beautiful work.
I decided to use watercolour pencils, because I like having the control of using a pencil and being able to draw/sketch/colour certain areas and then add water to blend. I recently purchased a set of 12 Derwent watercolour pencils and I really like them. I had a cheaper brand and they were awful. The pigment didn’t look right and they did not blend very well. I’m glad that I decided to go with Derwent and would like to buy a bigger set with more colours. 💕
One of my biggest challenges is trying to draw faces. So, I decided that I would try and focus my practice here. I still have a long way to go, but I think that I am improving with each attempt. 🤗
One of my first attempts. This is a bit cartoonish, but that face, aaaw.
Sorry about the accidental black eye… 😐
Finally, a mouse and flower. 🐭🌼
