This was gone on 90% Fabriano watercolor studio paper. Size 4 x 6 inches, using Albrecht Durer watercolor pencils with the paint taken directly off the pencil. Used a new Chinese waterbrush similar to the Niji waterbrushes . The brush in the one I used are the regular length as normal Chinese brushes.
This was for a challenge for a monochrome painting in the APC group I belong.
Here's my latest done on Yupo paper with Holbein Duo water soluble oils. Size 5 x 7. Not quite dry, but the mat lifts it far enough off the scanner glass. This was a bit of a challenge with the oils. It's hard enough with watercolors. Next try will be acrylics.
Here's my latest still life for Nel's on-line oil painting class. This was done with Holbein Duo watersoluble oils on 8 x 8 inch canvas paper. I did one similar to this ATC size using watercolor pencils. The background was a bit different. This one was quite a challenge. I normally don't care to do still life's, but it was an assignment.
I'm taking an on-line acrylics course from Andy Walker at http://www.learntodo.co.uk . This is a self paced course with 6 sections and 24 parts to it.
The first lesson was doing a color wheel, which I have done many, so didn't put it up here.
In this exercise, we were to do a value drawing of a scene from the course. So, this is my attempt. In the next lesson, I will be adding color to this painting.
I'm also taking his watercolor course which is divided into 12 sections with 32 parts. Since I have done some watercolor in the past, I did not do any of the exercises in the first 2 lessons of this course. But will be adding paintings from the next lessons.
