In the meantime, I have started a portrait of Irish Terrier, “Bradley.” This portrait is a bit different for me as I’m starting with an under-drawing in watercolor pencils (in this case Albrecht Durer Purple-Violet pencil), before adding the subsequent layers in non-soluble (Polychromos) colored pencils. This is a technique I’ve wanted to explore for quite some time, but am only getting around to now. I have high hopes for it. ;-)
Here is the beginning of the piece. Please check back soon for more updates.
|Stage one of "Bradley," watercolor pencil has been applied dry.|
|Stage two, the watercolor pencil have been wet.|
