watercolor portals 1
This morning I took out another photo from WetCanvas.com. I'm still learning what the different watercolor pencils can do. Playing with light tand shadows too. This doorway is in an old church cloister. I don't know what country it is in as the photo didn't say.
I did a quick pencil sketch to get the basic shapes and then started in with the colored pencils. The photo was 'really dark' except for the open door and the outside. I HAD to put in a bit of the other door. :)
This was mostly done with Graphitint pencils with a bit of prismacolor watercolor pencil for the yellows. This is small only 5.5 x 4.25 inhes on 140# watercolor paper.
As always any constructive comments greatly appreciated! thanks for looking and letting me know what you think. :)
Thanks Rachel for the suggestion of darkening the shadows! I think it is much better now.
have a lovely Sunday!
