Here is a study I did of an eye of a white-tailed deer following Cathy Johnson’s tutorial in her book, “Watercolor Pencil Magic” which I HIGHLY RECOMMEND!
This study was done on a 5 1/2 x 8 Strathmore Visual Watercolor Journal, 140lb cold press, using Faber-Castell Albrecht Durer watercolor pencils in the following shades:
- black 199
- venetian red 190
- raw umber 180
- burnt ochre 187
- Van Dyck brown 176
I used a water brush to activate the colors, letting each layer dry thoroughly (or using a hair dryer to speed things along) before adding in more layers.
