Never waste paper :)

I had some grainy watercolor paper and tested some coloring on it. Well not that exciting and the outcome was not really something to admire, haha.

So I took my fineliner (0,5 mm) and drew some pattern on it.

Coloring with Faber Castell color pencils and some Neocolor. Was not so easy because of the structure of the paper and does not look so smooth, bu I must say that I like this effect πŸ™‚

Often I just take some paper to try out some water colors to see how they look when dried up or mixed and often it just ends up being cut in pieces for drawing on the backside or even on the colored side.

But sometimes I look at it and see something. That happened with this one. I was trying out one of the Jane Davenport Mermaid markers and while I was drying it….this little guy merged out of it πŸ™‚

So I grabbed my fine liner and added some lines.

To bad you can’t see the shimmer/glitter which is on top of the background color, it’s not easy to catch on photo πŸ™‚


Sketching habit

In 2019 I want to get in to the sketching with just a pencil en paper stump. So I got out my simple and cheap sketchbook which I was not using as the paper is not that thick and it turns out perfect for this πŸ™‚

This are the first sketches in it πŸ™‚ I want to do this daily, so sometimes it will just be a quick one with not so much details and sometimes with more details.

Often I will use photos as inspiration for the stuff I want to sketch and hopefully with that I will improve to the point that I don’t need them anymore.
