The arc-de-triomphe Watercolor Painting

This is a watercolor wash for the background, and "liquid pencil" graphite in grey and sepia for the rest.
8 x 10" artwork size

My thought today, on danger and this quote:

"The chief danger in life is that you may take too many precautions." ...Alfred Adler

This one reminds me of Angus Stewart's painting style, which I happen to love.

What is "liquid pencil"?

I also like your quotes -- you are well-read, and we are of like-mind.

"Liquid Pencil" is something I just started to experiment with. It's made by Derivan and comes in different shades.

The "re-wetable" version can be lifted off the paper, so it's perfect for sketching, and it gives you great values. It doesn't smudge like regular pencil, and dries hard. It would be perfect for a sketchbook.

If you use it with watercolor, you have to put the watercolor wash down first and then the liquid pencil because it lifts when you wet it. Or you could put watercolor in white areas.

Thank you for your comment. Thank you for the link...his work is great....I am flattered!
