Watercolor and graphite. About 5″ x 6″. I can’t do encaustic because my studio in the house isn’t well ventilated. So, I am stuck with traditional medium. I am trying to force a carefree feel to the pieces by doing a base of watercolor that is random and then choosing something to draw on top of it. I would prefer to use colored pencils, but I am away from the studio and all I have is watercolor and graphite. Oh, and pastels–but I am not interested in using those. Sometimes it is good to have limited options. I haven’t really worked with the watercolor…easy to get it muddy, so I am going to have to try a really light hand.
