This is a little pencil drawing I did today of a sprig of violets I pulled up out of my yard.  After I was  finished  drawing, I decided to color it in with some watercolor.  I took a picture before and 
after... I don't know which one I like better.

  1. I was delightfully surprised to see the watercolored-in version as I scrolled down. I've never any success applying watercolor over a detailed pencil drawing. Wonderful job Debbie! It reminds me of illustrations done by botany artists way back.But I have to ask: how did you prevent the graphite from smudging and mixing with the watercolor? My guess is spray fixative perhaps? Or perhaps (shhhhh...) a trade secret? (Promise I won't tell!!)


Thanks for leaving you comments!! I appreciate it!
