Watercolor Stitch and Pooh





These are two that I did for my youngest son in watercolor. They have been big parts of my kids lives and were fun to do. In actuality, this is mixed-media. I sketch in pencil, used Faber Castell Polychromos for the line work and colored it with watercolor and gouache. The pictures are roughly 6x4 ans 5x7 respectively. I painted on Strathmore Mixed Media 400 Vellum and Arches Hot Pressed paper.  Both are very smooth working well for small paintings and any detailed renderings.

I hope to post more often this year than last.  I finally got situated in Texas and have my work area organized.
