I purchased a waterbrush the other day on Amazon to bump the total in my cart to qualify for free shipping (which is now $35 instead of $25). I had been thinking about buying a waterbrush anyways, so it was the perfect opportunity to finally buy one. I was testing it out with some watercolor pencils that I’ve had for years (And I don’t ever really use them). In fact, I don’t do much watercolor painting at all these days, but I’m looking to change that.
I drew the scene with a normal pencil and then I drew with the watercolor pencils. I then used the waterbrush to brush over the lines, and pick up some watercolor paint from some pans in a little portable watercolor set.
Sometime I’ll probably get a scan of the sketch.
I highly recommend getting a waterbrush. It’s a pretty handy tool and I think it will prove to be very handy when watercolor sketching on location.
