Hi, Dion Dior here, I've been loving the March theme "Natural Surfaces". I've been playing around with all sorts of ideas and mediums and thought I'd share my little video tutorial where I give you a few tips on capturing rocks in your watercolor sketchbook.
In this free video tutorial, I use the new Stillman & Birn Zeta Series Sketchbook, Sakura Koi Water Colors, Faber-Castell Water Color Pencils, and the Koh-I-Noor Rapidograph and Nexus pens. I show you that capturing the natural surfaces of rocks is a very simple technique that can be used for all sorts of surfaces. A light wash is followed by some darker layering and then simple pen strokes--it's that easy.
Have fun, and don't forget to post your sketchbook pages in the Flickr group.
Thanks for checking in. xx
