I’ve been sketching the drawings in this book by J. C. Amberlyn that I recommended in a prior post. If you want to learn how to draw almost any kind of animal, this is a terrific book to try. (Thanks again to Joan at Dusty Acres for pointing me in this artist’s direction.)
I went in with ink (Micron 005) directly, which I’m starting to get used to. I’m learning that it helps to use a very light touch, so it’s not as obvious when I go astray. I wish I’d taken a picture of this prior to adding the color. I used the prismas because they were close at hand, then decided it looked better without the color. Went back to erase….and nope.
The Polychromos do erase, unless you’ve used a very dark color and pressed hard. With lines as lightly as I’ve used here, I could have gone in with the eraser, and you’d barely see any color at all. I didn’t have the same luck with the prismas. Too waxy? Or maybe the kneadable eraser was the issue? Not sure; I decided to just leave it and move on.
Happy Monday! Yes, any day can be happy, especially if art supplies are waiting for you at the end of it. 🙂 Flame on! We are art energy, and we be rollin’ people. Peace.
