This weeks explorations in my drawing class continued on from last weeks look at rhythmic lines and patterns but this time with colour. We had a selection of vegetables to chose from ( who could guess at the beauty of a cross section of a leek in all its yellowy green glory ) but predictably I went for the purple!
Tried a number of different techniques - with watercolour pencil and watercolour above.
My favourites tho' involved using a wax candle to draw with and then laying watercolour over the top. Drawing with the candle over coloured washes (below) was particularly effective.
