Is gorgeous! MJ - might I ask what is your preferred choice of colored pencils? (I'm getting back into the swing of using another medium like colored pencils - I have LOTS of prisma and another brand - Lyra I think)
Reply
:iconmjwilliam:
MJWilliam Featured By Owner Feb 8, 2014  Professional Traditional Artist
Thank you so much! This is actually watercolor (no colored pencils here at all). But when I do use them it's usually a mix of regular Prismacolor, hard leads Prismacolor (called Berol Verithin) and Faber-Castell Polychromous. The hard leads are great for small details and blending.

Its lovely the watercolor! So vibrant! Any particular brand you favor? (me - Daniel Smith and Windsor Newton and then whatever is on

Thank you again! :) I haven't tried those brands so I can't comment. If you can afford Schmincke Horadam it's the absolute best. Otherwise Yarka is a great alternative.

I love it. It's awesome how people can paint with aryl and ink. (I'm not really good in it)
Reply
:iconmjwilliam:
MJWilliam Featured By Owner Feb 3, 2014  Professional Traditional Artist
Thanks! :) I'm not a fan of acrylics either, they dry too fast for my liking. This is mostly watercolor with white acrylic used for highlights and ink for linework.

OK, I understand, but colors are colors, for me it doesn't matter if it's watercolor, acryl or something other. It's awesome when you can paint with traditional items.
