This is the second in a series I’m doing with a limited palette and working faster and freer. This sketch was done with my Derwent metallic watercolor pencils in blue, red and pewter.

Afternoon Shadows

Canals in Venice

Normally I spend a lot of time working on a sketch or finished piece. This time I decided to work small and see if I could work a bit faster and looser. This is made up of only 4 colors (Light Blue, Prussian Blue, Dark Violet and May Green). It definitely was a challenge for me but I think it came out well.
