Ahhh...something a little bit different...an ice skater! I am still looking forward to trying the water soluble graphite pencils that I mentioned in our last time together! I did however try the watercolor pencil and as you can see in the ballerina sketch above it did indeed produce a deep rich shadow color.
Speaking of color...I am always impressed with the work of artist Juliette Crane. I love the way she makes use of everything in one painting (see photo)!
Below is a quote by the artist Helen Gorrill. This is a very interesting concept that I have explored over the years but not to the extent mentioned here.
Color me Degas: I would love to create some mighty and beautifully colored ballerina paintings using as they say 'everything but the kitchen sink'. At this point I have no idea how - but this is certainly an adventure I am looking forward to.
