Day 78 – Boat on a lake

Elegant writer and watercolor. I had watched a video saying that the Elegant Writer fixes itself after the initial wetting, but it seemed to reactivate when I applied the watercolor, so it turned out much darker than expected.

Day 53 – Red Barn

I wanted to experiment a little with using an Elegant Writer to lay down a black and white underpainting, then go back with some Caran D’Ache Neocolor II wax pastels. It didn’t go quite as well as planned, and the paper buckled a bit, but I love the greens and pinks of the Elegant Writer when it touches water. It gives it a magical feel.
