seeds




In each of these images I started by blocking in the shape with a wet brush and then creating texture with watercolor and salt (as above). From there I used colored pencil and a bit of watercolor to bring out the form. It was a fine balance between incorporating and obliterating the original texture in the finished drawing, but I think the approach helped add a little life to these botanical studies :)
