Done for the moment. Sunday Funday with Ian Fennelly. Who could resist drawing the Eiffel Tower with Ian??! Really enjoyed it despite I wore my hand out inking it. Should have taken a lunch break. One of my fav places in Paris esp when lit up at night.
I sat under it on one Saturday nite drawing it. Heaven for someone who loves to sketch.
Of course I can’t find the picture of the sketch right now. A double page spread too.
The sketch. Tombow time.
Firming it up with permanent ink markers. Like the lettering but little matchbox cars. Oops. Oh well. Can’t have it all, right?!
First layer of watercolor. Four colors. Winsor Newton Brown Madder, WN Cerulean, WN Prussian Blue, and M Graham Azo Orange. Oh a dab of ivory black used as a grey.
Close up. Yummy colors. The weird brown red is the the brown madder.
Adding more tombows. Coloring with the marker end. A range of greys and black. Second sweep with watercolor. Cross hatching underway with permanent fine liners .05, .03 and .01.
Finished exhale or it got a little dark. One good thing abt fluid hotpress. You can wipe some of the color off.
Here it is now. My fav bit are the cobble stones near the crosswalk. No idea why but there it is.
But this one is still my fav.
Next Sunday Sacre Couer!
