Day #5: Old and Falling Apart
As I started this piece, it was going to be a watercolor. The more I worked on it, the more I desired getting out the watercolor pencils - I am spoiled! I LOVE them! I lightly drew this with a #2 pencil and then wet the entire surface of the paper and dropped in burnt sienna, paynes grey, davey's grey, naples yellow and pthalo blue, wet-in-wet. At this point the watercolor pencils started calling to me and before I knew it, there they were - sitting on the table. Soooo - this is a combination watercolor/watercolor pencil painting for day #5 in my quest for 90 works in 90 days!
