Water Sky

Water Sky I

It has been a little while since I posted a colored pencil piece. Here is the latest. Inspired by the changing light and color of the ocean and sky, I decided to try a more simplified composition as a statement of color. And yes, the title does suggest that there may well be more like this to come.

Dear Ann - thanks for stopping by to visit and leave such nice comments. This colored pencil landscape is gorgeous. Do you ever use watercolor as an underpainting for your colored pencil. I have been playing around doing this but not sure I am satisfied with the results. Thanks for sharing.

Oh my...breathtaking! That icean calls to me, and looks warm, which I'm not. Lovely work Ann!

I feel as if I am on a boat looking far out to sea. This is the essence of the beauty of the sea for me. Stunning!

Thanks Debbie, Jennifer and Sherry!
Debbie, I have tried watercolor as underpainting with cp, but like you, have never been happy with the results. I keep thinking a different paper or something but have yet to find a method I like. I have, however, seen other artist use this method with beautiful results.

great reflections of the sky in the water :)

the only surface i have had any luck with with using watercolours and cps together is actually thick paper covered in gesso and then lightly sanded. takes a little longer to dry and the watercolour can pool if you don't have the paper flat but it works well. the texture from the sanded gesso works well with cp.
