The snowflakes are back. This is my second study of a photograph I took in the Christchurch Botanic Gardens last spring. It’s looser and more dramatic than the original sketch (below). I really went to town adding watercolour pencil over the top of an ink and watercolour sketch. Using the pencils wet (by dipping them in water) and then drawing on the wet sketch not only produced some wonderfully intense colours, it also added a rather nice texture. It’s a technique that definitely warrants further investigation… My thanks again to everyone who voted in the poll and asked me to draw this one again.

Using the pencils wet looks great!
Love it Anna this new technique works really well … love the boldness whilst at the same time keeping the flower’s delicacy .
Glad you went to town !
