Continual Line Contour with Watercolor
Here is a demonstration of how I use watercolor with a "Continual Line Contour Drawings". I use Tombow pens for the drawing because they are a water based inks and dissolve nicely when I paint watercolor on top. The color I prefer is a burnt sienna. Another reason I like to use these pens is because the drawing becomes less prominent than water proof pens.
In the photograph I show the still life set-up, the contour drawing, and the final stage with watercolor. This is a wonderful warm up exercise. If you are not sure how to approach a Continual Line Contour Drawing look at the prior post on my blog.
