How to Make Transfer Paper, Koo Schadler

In the article “Tools That Are Tried and True” (The Artist’s Magazine, November 2011), Koo Schadler says she can make transfer paper in “any color of the rainbow,” using pigments or pastels, solvent and parchment paper.

“Face Up” to the Joys of Prismacolor Watercolor Pencils

Shelley was so inspired that she wanted to try her hand at Picasso’s famous style and shared her process with us! See she tackled Picasso and the joy of working with Watercolor Colored Pencils! Picasso was an amazing artist whose work spanned over seven decades. His art included drawing, painting and sculpting, often depicting images of women. His passion and willingness to bend and break the “classical rules” of art often made his works controversial, and some of his works in the Cubist style seemed very abstract in their approach. After going through the Picasso Museum in Barcelona, Spain, I wanted to try my hand at drawing a face, in the manner of Picasso, using the Prismacolor Watercolor Pencils. Prismacolor. Prisma Color.

Watercolour Pencils

The next on the agenda is my collection of watercolour pencils. They have been previously been listed on my Current Sketching page but here is the full colour chart. I have always had some watercolour pencils in my kit (since Sketchbook Number 1) but it has taken me years to find a way that I am really happy with since they are only ever a part time use. In fact in the early days I often used them to patch up a bad watercolour wash - would not do that now. I don't like that they - lift too easily - too much water and they disappear - lose intensity when you add water (with the exception of a few colours that go way too intense with water) - are so opaque.
