From drawing to painting

After watering

Lines and Painting

    A local art  supply and gallery Boundless Arts has an open studio once a month, which is a great get together time for artist. 
A still life is set up and everyone can paint or draw it, or work on what ever they please in the company of friends.
This time I decided to combine drawing and art. I used Derwent Woodless Aquatone watercolor pencils, violet and yellow to draw the still life, pushing myself a little bit more, used only parallel lines. Using parallel lines keeps me focused on my line work and offers a consistency to the work.  With watercolor pencils it is easy to turn your sketch in to a painting, just brush over the lines with a wet brush.  Finished up with a focal point of the fish in light red.  Another pencil I like by Derwent is the Inktense with these once dry, the color is permanent and can be worked over with other media.
Time for art is great, time with friends and art is priceless.
