Blue Swirl Pot

Following my lemon pot pic i wanted to do a few more studies before i do a larger piece with a similar theme. So i decided to do two pictures of the same subject and see the differences in time it takes to do, the finished result and the processes.

I have mainly been working on dark colourfix paper lately which is quite rough, so for these i have gone back to the smooth paper and white (its been a while) but i enjoyed it.
For some reason i have had a real hankering to do some watercolour lately, so for this first pic i have used White arches watercolour paper with a watercolour underpainting. I really really enjoyed this i could have just kept going and going with the watercolour if i wasnt on an agenda. (so i really must do some more watercolour soon).

The process went really fast and i am happy with the way it turned out. I found the light values much easier to put down as i was able to establish values quickly in the beginning. I really wasnt happy with the wood in the lemonpot picture and while its not at the level i was hoping for yet, i was much happier with the result of this one.

The next one will be using cpencil only and lots of blending and brushing. Stay tuned.

Hi Belinda,

I meant to comment before - I really like this one. The different textures are spot on, and especially the wood is gorgeous!
