I’ve had my eye on trying watercolor paint and colored pencils again, two things I haven’t done in a long time, when I discovered watercolor pencils. I could try them both at once! Ok, maybe the watercolor paint experience is a bit different than this, but I could achieve a similar look by using something more familiar to me.
I also got some calligraphy pens as a gift, something I’ve never tried before. So, I decided to try my new pencils and pens together by drawing some birds, coloring them with the watercolor pencils, and inking them with the calligraphy pens.
It was fun trying out new mediums and, for my first try with both of them, I think my birds came out pretty good.
