Neither Fig nor Grape!
Ni figue, ni raisin is a French expression describing something that isn’t qite one thing nor another.. I’m using it here to describe the way watercolor pencils seem to me.
This medium is on the borderline between drawing and painting. In theory it should be right up my alley, because I love drawing, but it’s so hard for me! Once again, someone named Casey has been defeated in Mudsville!
These, believe it or not, are the best of the week’s production. We’re working on landscapes with rain (maybe that explains all the mud I’ve been making!), as well as still lifes with colrs in the reflection. these are all small formats, as it’s really hard to cover a lot of ground with wc pencils.
Some of the students in Kate’s class are doing incredible work. I think part of my problem is that I just hate planning ahead (audible sigh)
