- Fine black pen
- In your gardens or indoor house plant; choose one plant that is looking wonderful and do a detailed sketch with pencil.
- Make sure you look carefully at shapes and details. You may want to concentrate on just one area.
- Go over drawing with a fine black pen.
- Paint one small area with water colour.
You could also do 3 drawings of same plant or leaves or grasses use your fine black pen to go over each one.
Now do a graded wash over the whole thing. Do 3 different colour washes.
A graded wash is a wash of different colours you blend together – remember to mix your washes in your pallets so you are ready to blend.
