I have wanted to try watercolor pencils for the longest and I finally purchased some yesterday.
I bought a book called: Drawing Lab (52 creative exercises to make drawing fun)
by Carla Sonheim
She encourages you to do different projects and gives you assignments.
She writes, "It's a paradox when you have complete freedom, you often "freeze up" and do nothing. This book is a compilation of assignments that I have given myself over the years to get myself moving. Others were developed for elementary school-age students. When I started teaching adults, I found these same exercises to be the most effective. (We're all just kids inside still, right?)"
These are some drawings I did with my water color pencils inspired by her book.
I have painted with acrylics but I found this to be fun due to no clean up and no mess.
A nice thing to do on a rainy day.....
