The more that I have learned by practicing on paper (hand drawing) I think I can now draw by doing sketches and in practice it turns out it is better to do both simultaneously. I do a lot of sketches on paper.
How do you use pencil and watercolor in your art? What are the effects you get with each?
If I am drawing very fine lines I will use pencil. If I am drawing a fine, thin line it will be in charcoal, and there will no way to use this without use of a brush (since I am working with charcoal). If I’m working in ink and water I will use watercolor.
