Monthly Sketch Project for January
















January's Monthly Sketch Project entry.Rosehips in the snow
from a lovely photograph by Jennifer Rose, see  here .
Done with Derwent Graphitints (used dry and smudged) and coloured pencils.
I added a bit of 'extra' snow at the end with a white watercolour pencil dipped into water,
something you should avoid if you  don't want to ruin your pencils,
but it was all I could find that was white enough.
Acrylic paint would have been better but mine was all dried up
and tippex was the only other alternative!

White can be a problem...usually I'd plan ahead and leave the area unpainted, but if it's only bits and tips you need, then goauche or, as you used, a white watercolour pencil (I am very pedantic and apply a wet brush to the actual pencil tip, to avoid softening the pencil nib, which takes longer but doesn't ruin your pencils).

Beautifully drawn :) I admit, I used a gelly roll pen to add my extra white- but would definitely have considered tippex lol
