Watercoloured roses

April 21, 2009

I got a wonderful gift bag from a co-worker two years ago.  It was this one by Jean Tucker:

And I was inspired to paint this:


I used a combination of my new Derwent watercolour pencils and tube Winsor & Newton watercolours.  I started out with the pencils, and then when things started going awry, I panicked and turned to the more familiar tube watercolours to salvage it.   I painted this on Strathmore’s 140 lb cold-pressed watercolour paper.

I love Jean Tucker’s other gift bags:

Thanks for looking!
