Watercolor and Sharpies

Art Therapy Piece: Watercolor Pencils with Water Applied by Brush


Over the past several weeks I have started projects in the art therapy group I am participating in. I realized that I had 3-4 that I had not finished. I worked diligently this week in getting them done. I feel very good for having done them!

I learned something very important while working on this project. Watercolor pencils do not work with acrylic primed canvas pages. The water you add with a brush, instead of blending, beads up and sits on the paper. So, I had a restart. This time I dug out the watercolor paper, that I had seen before but I had wanted to go larger.

I started with a yellow/gold sharpie.

After the yellow, I dropped down to the bottom left using purple.
