Watercolor and graphite: 4″ x 6″

Much happier with the watercolor and graphite medium. I think the pastels are going to have to go into the bottom of the tool box for now. I am working with controlling the watercolor under the graphite…while still allowing the watercolor to do it’s own thing. Some areas were blocked out with rubber cement in order to maintain some white show through. This seems to work well…although hard to be too detailed with it…but that is probably a good thing for me. I am going to do two more watercolor grounds at the same time for the next two pieces. I like the idea of working on more than one at a time. I have one ground that is waiting for me…I just haven’t been inspired yet by the subject. I am really drawn to the shape and curve of the calla lily.
