Watercolor pencil and watercolor are things that I had a lot of trouble with in the beginning. The paint went his own way and did exactly the opposite of what I wanted. I like to have control over things and that did not really work with watercolor… So a very good lesson in letting go and watch what happens. I learn a lot more than just drawing and now I love watercolors and letting go.
When you’re in the flow of drawing and painting it gives such peace. I think it’s very good for your body and mind, somewhat like meditating. My mind gets turned off and my body relaxes, a wonderful feeling!
I’ve used Derwent Inktense watercolor pencils. The colors are very vibrant and it dries permanent. The drawing was done with graphite pencil and the white lines with a gel pen. The size of the watercolor paper is 10×15 cm.
The words I cut from an old Dutch book. Translated in English it goes: “Quietly her deepest thought flowed out to sea”
