Sundry Watercolor Sketches 2 by nicholaskole Sundry Watercolor Sketches 2 by nicholaskole
SO...recently I've been doing a lot of sketching in ballpoint and prussian blue watercolor. I haven't posted any of it up here since I wasn't sure the DA community would be that interested in my sketches. But people who read my blog seem to like it- so I thought I'd toss it up here!

It relaxes me to loosen up and let go of my feeling of responsibility to render everything out. I do a lot more of this now than I do "finished" work. And you know what? I like it more.

These are an assortment of some of my favorite sketches over the last 6 months or so.

You draw with a ball point pen and then wash over it with water color?
Or water color out the basics and add in details with the ball point?

I'm interested in trying out such a style. I also have water color pencils, but they have been difficult to use so far.

Nice work!:icongrin--plz:

I draw quickly with a blue ballpoint and then use prussian blue watercolor and a brush over the top of that.
I've never used watercolor pencils before- I prefer watercolor paint in a tube (that way I can more easily control how light/dark the paint is)

Good luck!
