Old drawings/paintings

Some old drawings/paintings, done this year, many based on the Virtual Instructor tutorials.

This old beaten up car was done using watercolors, pen and pastel pencils, I really liked trying this out, since it was first attempt with mixed media.

This a watercolor painting that took ages to complete, but at the end I was quite happy with it.

And finally two draings done with watercolor pencils.

New goodies - A mini haul

I have bought some new materials to try out. You know art materials are never too much, so this is what I got recently:

A set of Conté Carré pastels, two blocks of Hahnemühle paper (one for watercolors and the other for sketchs) and a set of 60 Rembrant pastels. Let's see then how they behave.

Inktense Sketches

Still learning how to work with Inktense pencils, but I was quite happy with these two small sketches.

In the first one I also used some watercolor for the background together with the Inktense pencils.

Both drawings were done on Clairefontaine Paint On paper and they took more or less one hour to finish.  

It's hard to find tutorials on these pencils online, but Lisa Clough from Lachri Fine Art youtube channel has some great tips on how to work with both Inktense pencils and blocks.
