sweat pants

sketch journal

Ink and wash. After the sketch and after the journaling I decided to wash with watercolor pencils. I've never used these before but decided to give it a try.

I bought only grey watercolor pencils. I only wanted to color the contours of the pant material to give it depth. I then washed over it with pure water. I'm pleased with the result. The pants even have that soft, comfortable look that only sweat pants have. It came out looking fairly real.

And so that's all I know about color pencils.
