Experimenting with Watercolor Pencils

This watercolor of the granite cliffs is one that I want to experiment with. After laying in color in the second half of the picture, I next did some textural lines with different watercolor pencils. I also wanted to deepen the cracks and crevices. I stopped before I did every rock! (An old habit of mine).

And then touched or lightly brushed the pencil areas with a brush dipped in water. Some of the pencils when wet turn out to be a screaming color - way too wild. Either I have to dab it off with a paper towel or not wet it.

Next, I plan to do something with rice paper on top. Stay tuned...I have no idea how this will come out!
