Combinations of watercolor and gel pen, seems to work well. First one, with pen sketch on a watercolor background. Second one, a watercolor painting contoured with black pen.
Tried to make an effect similar to sprinkling watercolor, using oil pastels. Made the background by applying with different colors and smudging them. Then painted the foreground hills and trees with black. Then made stars by shaving white pastel with a paper knife and pressed them on the paper.
Used oil pastel after many years. Result was satisfactory. Missing some details though for not having a crayon pencil. And as usual it is hard to recognize my portrait paintings, FYI this is meant to be Daisy Ridley as Rey in Star Wars series.
Here are some of my recent works with white charcoal on black paper. After few days playing with black charcoal thought of trying some white ones too. Used General’s white charcoal pencil on black chart papers. Feels kinda like chalk on black board.
Found Apsara a bit rough, so tried General’s 4B Charcoal pencil for later ones. The Paper Stumps help too. Gal on the same notebook and Joker on chart paper.
After seeing a video on Facebook, couldn’t resist of trying this toothbrush splattering technique. Seemed easy but nice looking for stars, trees etc. The starry sky is somewhat copy of the image I saw on Facebook. The cherry tree is just another try with technique, which actually didn’t go as expected.
This is the first time I tried charcoal drawing. Really loved the media after the first painting of dog. Used Bold, Medium and Hard Apsara Charcoal Pencil on Art notebook for Dog and Elephants painting.
