One continuous line, endless art

These free days over Christmas and New Year have been close to magic. Amongst reading, netfix’ing, coffee, magazines and endless plans for 2016, I allowed myself more artsy activities than usual ๐Ÿ™‚ The result?

I worked in ink and watercolour – I feel I can’t have enough of these yet. Those of you interested in drawing will recognise the technique used in the first two sketches: continuous line drawing (explained here). You basically place the pen on paper, and start drawing without lifting your pen until the sketch is done. Once you have your contours, you fill them inย using watercolours.ย That’s it!

The third sketch is for my sister ๐Ÿ™‚ I basically ink draw things she loves (fashion, travel, photography, music, bicycles and cupcakes) and added different soft watercolour washes in the end.

And to show you how easy it was and how much fun I had, here a time lapse on the birds sketch ๐Ÿ™‚

Until next time, dare to play with your ideas!

Yours truly,

Ana

    Love the bright colors on your houses and birds! What brand of watercolors are you using? I enjoy doing one liner drawings too. They are super fun to do on faces. ๐Ÿ™‚

      Hello, dear Jill ๐Ÿ™‚ Here I used Winsor & Newton, nothing special, but the strong white light is also reflecting colour. I guess this is why they seem so bright. Yes, it’s so easy to make them and the result can be indeed funny ๐Ÿ˜€ I have to put faces on my “to do” list then!
