Day 1158 Zoe time

Snuggling on my lap right now as I type. Really like how the base of gold that the page was washed with makes the blue look. Also how the crosshatching on her ears looks even though I will bet her right ear is too long. Oh well nothings perfect in a sketch.

Colors used: Ted Nuttalls transparent palette. Mineral violet cobalt quin sienna yellow plus Thalo blue for turquoise and green in her scarf. Alizarin in the cloth. Only red I put on the palette for some reason.

Stillman and Birn alpha Uniball pen I think but could be my Lamy Ef.

Day 1157 – Fernbank

I think it’s finally done. You never know. I always reserve the right to add to them. I do love to pile up sketches. Then I can sit down with my own personal “coloring ” book and paint or color the pages. This one is actually done with watercolor pencils. About twenty different colors.

Tea dyed

Don’t ask me which ones. I know I used ultramarine blue cobalt blue cobalt blue green shade and green gold. I also used several different purples. Finally found a really dark purple to use for the shadows.

the plain page

Since I tea dyed the page earlier I may have roughed up the surface. It did not take well to the watercolor pencil. These alphas LOVE plain watercolor but the pencils would not make a smooth wash on it. Or maybe it was the tea.

I also dropped some blue pencil shavings on the page just to see what would happen. Intensified the color but didn’t leave little spots like I hoped it would.

That’s about it.
