In this mixed media lesson, we’ll take a look at combining a variety of drawing and painting media to create a quick and loose sketch of three sailboats on the water.
We’ll first create a loose graphite sketch with a “F” graphite pencil.
We’ll then create a minimal pen and ink drawing defining mostly the contour lines.
Next, we’ll apply a few watercolor washes.
We’ll then enhance the color with a bit of white gouache (opaque watercolor).
Lastly, we’ll ad a few loose marks with colored pencils.
