ANOTHER WATER LILY



Another water lily painting using the Elegant Writer technique where you draw around the subject with the Elegant Writer and bleed that out using just water and a soft brush.  Then you add watercolor.


The first one, I left the lily white.  This time I bled out the Elegant Writer pen marks and added a touch of violet.



The students finished their paintings today, using this technique.

Dear Rhonda- I am really enjoying the art you are doing. The Elegant Writer certainly makes this piece sing. Hope you have a super day.

The texture of this is wonderful. What size is it?

RH Carpenter said...

Thanks, Sherry and Elizabeth (do try it, it's fun - you may even incorporate the pens and bleeding colors into your skies!).

Alice Jo, thanks so much. The first one is larger at 11 x 15 inches and this one is 10 x 12 inches. So both are fairly small, just to play with the technique.

RH Carpenter said...

this came out great. I like how you used the elegant writer pens for this. It worked really well with your image.
