Watercolours are something which I find incredibly difficult to use and I’m probably not alone.
I never use them on their own and always use them in conjunction with gouache, to fill in blocks of suggested colour before I switch to acrylic, or when I’m sketching to hint at colours.
I’ve spent most of today painting outside and although warm, it’s still a lot cooler than being indoors.
After finishing a new cat ACEO for auction on ebay, I got my sketch book out and began a quick watercolour sketch of a Armeria Maritima (Sea Pinks) plant that I have in a terracotta pot.
Normally I would do a light pencil sketch first but my pencil had gone AWOL so I just went straight in with the watercolours.
I quite like the simplicity of the sketch so I may digitally enhance it and use it to create some personal letterheads and stationery for you to purchase from my Zazzle store. We’ll see what happens.
As promised I have turned my Sea Pinks in to an elegant and stylish letterhead perfect for personal use, especially by those with green fingers. All text can be personalized by you so you can add your own contact information. You can even customize to move text around or, if you want, delete it.
