Floral Study

Florida artist Kathleen Pequignot sent us this colorful drawing along with the following report about her spontaneous drawing technique: “This floral study began with three separate photo inspirations. From these references I drew directly in my Beta Series art journal with a Uni-ball Super Ink pen. The ink is waterproof, so I was able to create watercolor washes over the line drawing. The heavy duty paper allows me to use a good amount of layering to create transparent wash effects. I was also able to add some small line texture with a watercolor pencil, adding water to fade it slightly into the background. I didn’t have a plan in the beginning or a graphite pencil layout, but I enjoyed the process as each floral took shape. I find that I tend to work more relaxed and direct this way in my art journals, and they end up being my favorite creations!” See more of Kathleen’s artwork on her Facebook page here:
