9 x 12 "Barrel Cactus
watercolor, watercolor pencils, traditional color pencils
While Baby Whit naps or plays in his gym, I worked in my sketchbook. First I did watercolor. Then I lifted out the white needles with a damp brush and then blotted with paper towel. Then I used a waxy white pencil to protect the white of the needles. Then I used watersoluable colored pencils. In some areas I blended with water, in areas of texture I left dry.
Here's Baby Whit!
