Girls in hats

#29faces.  More experiments with media.


In the park, (outline drawing)  pencil, 11 by 8 ins., W/C paper Face 14.




In the park, brusho crystals, 11 by 8 ins., W/C paper. Face 15.






Girl in hat, watercolour pencil, 11 by 8 ins., cartridge paper. Face 16.


Face 14: I am counting the outline drawing for the  'in the park' watercolour painting as face 14 this week in order to get up to date with faces for the 29 faces project.  Graphite pencil.

Face 15:  I wanted to try out Brusho colour crystals by Colourcraft company.

These crystals are scary to use...more or less uncontrollable.  However, once I got past the tension in using them, I rather liked them.  It will take a few more attempts to get confident with them.  

They give a neat loose watercolour effect. 

Face 16: The final face was to try out caran d'ache watercolour pencil in black.  I could have used stabilo but stabilo is much blacker in effect than the caran d'ache, and so I think  it would be better used in stronger or more dramatic subjects, 

Have a happy weekend.

Wow, you draw beautifully! I love the effect of the Brusho colors. I've never used them and the looseness would scare me, I think.

Beautiful Girls in Hats! I love the way the Brushos turned out. It really made the drawing pop. I also liked the 2nd girl who is drawn so softly. I can see the difference. Great job on both! Happy PPF!

These are all so beautiful...I love that you used the before Crystals piece as one face too!! The crystals are quite gorgeous...but it's nice to have the outline for any photoshop work, or for a colouring book down the line!! Love your last face too, so sweet!

Hugs Giggles
