Leo’s accidental watercolor

I used my own carved wood sticks to make this drawing and permanent ink, on a stillman and birn Zeta series notebook. Then I applied W&N cotman’s watercolors witha petit gris brush

the result was ok, with a few spots here and there but overall I’m happy with this 🙂

Trial and Error

It all started when I messed up this watercolor

I made a sketch of the drawing, which became more simplified

I used my carved willow sticks to apply ink in simplified strokes to get the essence of the sketch

At the end the character was different so I don’t know which I like best but I think the black and white 🙂

we often “play” challenges like this in which we limit the materials and try to come up with something creative, then play a guessing game to see who drew what.

We call it Sherlock. In this case, we limited the challenge to just a few list of materials and one color
