St. Joseph's On Capitol Hill

I didn't make the sketch outing yesterday since  we had graduation and birthday celebrations,  but I did go out today to Tully's on 19th and Aloha.  I went to scope out what there is to draw around that area.  My sketching class is meeting there. 

I did this sketch while enjoying the sun and a Mocha Bellacino, testing out a different media.
In this sketch I used ink with a bent nib pen.  Later I colored with watercolor pencils and finally added water with a watercolor brush.  Here are the two stages of the sketch, the first with the watercolor pencil laid over the ink line and then after with the water wash to blend the watercolor pencil.
Water wash over watercolor pencil.

  1. Really nice, Gail. The watercolor pencils look almost chalky. What brand are you using?

    1. Thanks Jane,
      I have a mix of Derwent and Staedtler. I got them at the U Bookstore.
