Pen and wash

I love using pen and watercolour together – either under-drawing to then add the washes, or over-drawing to help redefine if it has gone a bit too loose. I ran a workshop this weekend with a lovely group and did these as demonstrations of both approaches. Luckily that also gave me day 9 and 10 of #worldwatercolormonth.

Here’s a bonus day 11 – another rescue piece – using the pen to add a bit of oomph:
