Sunday Sketches

a rather blah art day today. Was up too early and worked on some line art and then coloured one and started on another. The colour that is progress is an evolution of last weeks fairy. Medium used is water colour pencil with turpentine. Lines was created in Illustrator. Yup these are test for digital stamps :]
Hope you are having a super Sunday. Pop over to  Sophia's Sunday Sketches   to see some fab artist work.
Cheers

Hi Jehanne, love these... I wouldn't have thought of using turps with watercolour pencils... I'm sure I've said before.. I'm totally in love with waterpencils.... sorry you've been having blah... hope it's better..

Such cute little whimsies. I've never tried pencil and turps before... sounds intriguing!

Precious! Why do you use turpentine with the watercolor pencils instead of water? Does it give a different look?

Christine said...
