I was monkeying around a little tonight with this one. (Pun intended. Tee hee.) Last week my family and I went on a trip to St. Simons Island, Georgia. While we were there, we visited Savannah for a day. Savannah is such a beautiful city! I remember visiting Savannah as a child and dreaming of going to SCAD (Savannah College of Art and Design.) I never had that opportunity but I am still amazed by the influence the school has had on the area. They've restored countless buildings to preserve the city's history. While we were there, I couldn't help but pick up some watercolor pencils - and I had the opportunity try them out tonight.
Here's what the the painting looked like when I started.
I used Caran D'Ache Supracolor Soft pencils. I had a lot of fun working with them but they are very different from traditional watercolor painting. You should all try using them too! I'd love to hear about your experience.
