Hi everyone!

Although I am working full time from home, in my spare time I am drawing and painting. I feel it is an activity which completely absorbs my attention, hence I think of nothing else!!

I started this a little over a year ago and through youtube tutorials I learned so much already! My favourite mediums are graphite, watercolours and coloured pencil! yes, coloured pencil is a respectable painting medium!!:pThese are a few projects I have completed. I am working on a couple at the moment and will post them once I am finished. If you want to see Masters at work, I have added my Instagram link and you can see who I follow :-) You will not be disappointed!

Enjoy your hobbies and post them too!! Coloured pencil.jpg graphite.jpg urban sketching.jpg

Thank you so much for sharing these. Did you know some people look at eBay item photos to try to find the reflection of the photographer?.. I found myself peering at the water droplets on the leaf, looking for the reflection of the artist ;) Awesome

These are amazing drawings, thanks for sharing Barbara and welcome to the community forum!
My flatmate has watercolour pencils, where you can add water directly to the drawing. I have been experimenting with these. Have you ever used those before?

Hi Lis

Thank you!

Yes I have!

They are super fun to use and give you more control of where you lay your pigment :-) Also, if you are on the go - well not right now! - you can paint with those and then later on add the water (or not! :D ) Versatile tools!! Some pros use them as the underpainting/base layer and then add colour pencil on top for details and other folk use them for card writing: draw the letters and then pull the pigment in the desired direction. Lots of youtube tutorials!

Have fun with them!!

Thanks Bárbara! Here's a try I did, where I followed a tutorial and then I decided to ink over it. Not sure how I like the blue ink, but it was fun to try!

Oh yey! You gave it a try!!
Very dreamy ? I like the blue ink. Makes a nice shadow effect. Happy painting!
