Artist’s Journal – Charlie the Dachshund

Posted on March 2, 2013. Filed under: Art | Tags: , , , , |

I finished the ink/watercolor of Charlie.  I got some new toys in the mail, new brush markers in gradations of black and some watercolor crayons.  These really helped with this piece because the crayons can cover areas faster than the pencils.  I was able to get a background done pretty efficiently as a result.  And the marker set includes some really fine blacks that helped me with his whiskers.  I haven’t found a good way to get the crisp white reflection in his eye.  I have a couple of white pencils and things, but they didn’t do the job.  That’s okay, it’s always nice to have another project!
