These are 3 works I’ve been piddling with over the last week. 2 are water colors and 1 is pastel. I used a Pitt pen initially for the watercolors. It helped to get a structure for them. I also am using better water colors. The others were not very good. I also found some watercolor paper and am using that. It has helped with using the watercolors. The pastel is a lot of lines right now. Will blend some of it into a more solid shape, I think.
The angels for me are an easy subject. It is from my invention so I don’t have to worry about correct structure as I would if I were using human figures. My biggest challenge is color. Which ones to use, do I blend the pastels? How many layers with the watercolors etc. etc. Don’t want it to look overworked.
