Steps


I used the Derwent WC pencils for an underpainting and Polychromos on the top, in some places I have used heavy layering and others I left the washes. The paper is Fabriano Classico.

I love the invitation in this picture ... to follow the steps to see what is at the top :o)

Are these 'new' or 'old' Derwent watercolour pencils? Think I've mentioned before that I've got lots of the old ones but haven't used them yet - I'm not very brave with a paintbrush yet but I love the idea of using washes to cut down on the final details with dry pencils.

Sue, these are the new ones and by far the best I have tried and yes they do speed up the process.

Really nice, Pauline, I like the composition. Don't envy you tackling those angles to get the perspective right but you succeeded! BTW what size is it?

Thanks Janet the size is 21x34cm, I guess I am lucky as perspective comes fairly naturally to me. Must have had a good teacher in the past.
Alex, I think the colours look more muted on the photo than they are in reality but they are not too far out.

I like this Pauline, such warm welcoming colours, it is obvious to see that find perspective easy. Lucky you.
