Focusing on flowers
What you need:Goldfaber Aqua watercolour pencil
Flowers make beautiful and interesting artistic subjects; no matter the variety, flowers have a timeless and classic visual appeal. And if you’re looking for a good subject to start with in watercolour pencil, flowers are an excellent choice. You can use the painterly effect Goldfaber Aqua watercolour pencil offers to render the soft, translucent quality of blossoms and foliage.
In this example, Debra K. Yaun uses water-soluble pencils in both ways, dry and wet, to render two simple flowers against a plain, dark background, creating strong contrasts and a dramatic finished piece.
Artist's Tip: Simplify the Subject
