Sad Faerie - watercolor study con't.

I finished up the first watercolor study and then applied some colored pencils on top. Having the pencil sketch underneath truly helped me. It was almost like applying a tint to the sketch, like you would with a black and white photo. Now I want to change things up a bit and try something different with the faery. Sort of pull away from the typical. We'll see how this goes.

This is wonderful, Kim :) So pretty! I look forward to what you come up with, too. Man, I need to get my hands on some art supplies like prisma colors or something! LOL!

My thanks to all of you for commenting.
Sr. Raul, me encanta tu arte. (excuse my Spanish).
C.G.: When does Toast make his debut?
Krista: Maybe you could cash in some of your books for some art supplies?

I think this turned out beautifully! "Tinting" a full value drawing is the simplest approach by far - and is gorgeous to boot.

Thank you Tara. You know, after all the kids were in school, my first job outside the home was at a company called INVU. It was before the digital age and we tinted sepia and b&w photographs. I still have those tinting colors somewhere. Mmm...wonder if they would work??

They're oil based, aren't they? If so, they'd probably work if you sealed the paper with a coat of something (clear gesso, matt medium, galkyd), or printed out your drawing on photo paper...?

This really does look fantastic. Excellent light watercoloring -I wish I was as deft.
