I’m having a boat load of fun on the toned paper and I have another dozen I want to do. I haven’t even started using the toned paper journals yet. Tomorrow, lol. I find it interesting how a simple pencil looks drawn on toned paper. It adds interest just by adding a toned background.

This was done using Faber-Castell Albrecht Dürer Watercolor Pencils. I know Faber-Castell has a new product out, Magnus watercolor pencils. They’re jumbo sized so they last longer. I now understand why I’d want a bunch of colors in the larger size. My greys, both warm and cool, my indigo, cream, ivory etc are running to nubs. They’re taking after they’re friend above. As you can see in the photo to the left, the Magnus is like twice as big. SO COOL. I could seriously use these. I absolutely love my Faber-Castells I couldn’t imagine not having them, they’re so versatile. All the artwork I’ve been doing is created with these watercolor pencils. I also use them to correct any watercolor paintings I do.
The piece was done on the excellent Kona Grey paper made by Global Art Materials. Love this paper, it’s inexpensive and thick enough to take multiple layers of media. I even added a little bit of water to smooth out some of the watercolor pencils.
I’ll be back soon with more art! Watch this space. Oh, and if you don’t want to miss a post, including the ANNOUNCEMENT about the Wet Paint new Schmincke palette, then go up to the top of my sidebar and Subscribe to my blog. I’d love it if you did. Later gator.
