3 Trees - biro, watercolour and dip-pen with ink

By Jamie Cooper, May 7 2019 11:41AM

So using my own reference photo I sketched in the basic shape of the trees using a biro on watercolour paper (140lb Aquafine). Some biros don't respond well to having a wash put over them so maybe experiment before-hand.

Once this was completed I laid a basic wash over the areas to denote the sky - followed by the foilage and forground greens.

Left to dry and applied dip-pen & black Rowney waterproof ink. to strengthen the tree structures, add texture to the foliage and grass. A couple of dabs of darker wash were then added in places to ehance the shadow areas.
