Landscape in Rose and Brown

This landscape began, as shown below, with a wash of watercolor. After the paper dried, I added the line drawing and shaded it a little with markers.

January 17, 2010: This drawing, from last week, fits well with the current weekly theme "wilderness" on Illustration Friday.
  • Copic marker colors used: E11, W0
  • Watercolor wash background: Dr. Ph. Martin's radiant concentrated watercolors - saddle brown, ultra blue, and crimson - 1 drop of liquid watercolor in 1/2 teaspoon of water. For more information about these watercolors, including my color chart, see this post.
  • Paper: Canson Montval watercolor block, 140 lb. cold press, 4x6"
