I created some washes on canvas paper and I just keep thinking about how to incorporate them into a drawing. The problem is I’ve worked in colored pencil on canvas paper before and despite the fact that it works, it’s not necessarily the best. It’s also been a few years so it might be worth revisiting. I’m also starting to think that maybe my oil paints were a poor investment. Painting is fun, but I just don’t enjoy it as much as drawing. Of course I could just give it all to Mini Riceball, including canvases and easel.
I think I may definitely investigate getting a sheet of watercolor paper though and a small set of water color paints. I think some washes under charcoal or colored pencil could be really interesting and I want to follow up on that.
I also started working on my sketch of Caspien in colored pencil and the more I worked on it the more I kept thinking about working on it in charcoal so I started another sketch. I think the proportions are on the first but I haven’t gotten the mouth quite right on the second. I thought the eye color was completely off in the colored pencil version but spending some time stepping back I think it’s on the right track.
