I would have posted these earlier, but I've been fighting another round of bronchitis this week. Fortunately, watercolor pencils are the ideal companion to hide out in the corner of a couch with. I have had these pencils for a while, but I would never have learned how to really use them to their full potential without the gracious teachings of Sherry Goshon.
I'm not crazy about the lettering on this one, but I love the way the bloom turned out. I used Macro Pearl pearl-ex powders to enhance the texture edging the petals.
This one is going to say "Love" with one letter in each corner once I give the darks another layer of pigment. I lost my black pencil and am finding it difficult to lay down a rich dark the way I'd like.
And this one -- yet another attempt at a white-on-white project -- is going to be "Grace".
I want to make a few more undersketches so I can take them along with me when we go to the Coast next week. I haven't been this excited about learning a new medium in a long time.
