Doesn't everyone eventually draw pears in their art journal? Well, I just did. Here's my pears drawn and painted with Derwent Inktense Pencils:
Inktense Pencils. The colors are so vivid! They also now have Inktense Blocks. I don't have any of those yet but they look like they would be lots of fun.
I rubber stamped on tissue paper and glued it down with matte medium. I use Daniel Smith Matte Medium for gluing down lightweight paper items. I then glued down some postage stamps with a pear image. I did that to help tie in this page to it's facing page where I did a Pear collage. Here it is:
This was a good exercise for me as I pretty much never use yellow. Green - all the time but not much yellow. Always good to use a color you don't usually use. Helps me to appreciate the color more. Also, always good to try to draw something...practice makes perfect, right? Not that I want to be perfect but hopefully keep improving!
Thanks for taking a look!
Enjoy Memorial Day Weekend!
