Sunday Sketches: Continuing to Grow
Hello and welcome to another fabulous week of sketching, painting and lots of creative inspiration. Regardless of what medium, style or techniques - everyone is welcomed here. Uh huh
Above are two more watercolor paintings I completed for my ongoing daily watercolor journal book challenge for the month of January. I'm really enjoying pushing myself to grow and blossom within my art. In these two paintings, I incorporated white pastel pencil, using it for the white areas. Before painting, I first apply the white pastel to the watercolor paper, then paint over it. It's a fantastic technique discovered and works very well.
This week is Mr.Toast's birthday, so we have been doing mini celebrations since Friday. (Yes, he's certainly loved and spoiled! Hee Hee) The first painting is Earl's Court where he spent his teenage years growing up. The second painting is Kensington Court, which is one of the many squares where he spent a lot of time as well.
Have a great Sunday, everyone! I'm looking forward to visiting each of you with a cup of tea in hand.
