A bit of color….

After the graphite drawing I have added some soft washes of color to the lichens.  I enjoy the combination of pencil and watercolor.  I think the texture of trees is especially suited to graphite and the delicate color of the lichens are a good subject to enhance with soft color.  Almost finished I will balance a few of the shadows in the graphite and see if a bit more color will be needed…before I call it done…..  This method reminds me of the hand painted intaglio prints, something old fashioned about it.
