first watercolor pencil work

A simple banana. I did this on a Canson 140 lb 5.5 x 8.5 watercolor journal, with prismacolor watercolor pencils. I found a niji waterbrush, and I do like working with it better than a regular watercolor brush and water. Seems like the water is more controlled.

Today, I also joined a *Love my journal* online class, which runs for 21 days. It seems like everytime I tried to sign up it was always in progress. I am excited to start another 21 day adventure in art.

Lovely post. I've been meaning to look into watercolor brushes for a while. Maybe I'll do that today =). As far as the class goes I'd love to know where to find something like that. I'm sure you'll have some great posts from that! Keep up the great work.

Hi,

You left a comment on my blog with the Chinese Painting book giveaway and commented that we lived in the same area. We sure do!

I couldn't find any place on your blog (I have subscribed in Google Reader, btw) that gave a way to email you.

If you would like to get in touch and maybe do some art together, email me. My email addy is on my site.

Nicely done.....wc pencils are FUN, though can take a bit of practice to really make them do what you want. Keep up the practice...LOVE the colors you go here.

I really like the banana. What is a Ninja brush?
Thank you for visiting my blog and giving a critique. I think I just over thought that it was a cloth shoe I was trying to portray.

Oops *niji* brush I meant.
