The Hut. Finished.

©Doreen Cross






The finished Hut. A real fun project. I know that Graphite and CP mixed tends to be muddy but where I put color, I kept the graphite to a minimum. The Ink didn't work to well. I will do another project using ink but will do it on watercolor paper and not film. I found that Ink and drafting film are very compatible.

We took this photo 6 yrs ago on a visit to the USA. Hut at Coles Pond. Vermont.

Oh this turned out great Dors. I am glad you enjoyed the experiment. It is always a wonderful feeling when we try something new and have it turn out the way this drawing did.

Dors said...

Thank you so much Maria and Gary. I appreciate your kind comments and encouragement. It was fun. I will have to think of another experiment.

Thank you Vic. It was a fun project and I wanted to try something new.

Dors said...

Sue, you are so kind with your comment. This project was new for me and wow did I have fun doing it.
I didn't care if it worked or not it was an experiment and I am quite pleased with it.

Thanks Sue. Hugs.

What a great finish, Doreen! I've really enjoyed watching this develop. Like someone has said, you have used the two media so effectively. I'm wondering if you've tried Derwent Graphitint pencils? They are, as the name suggests, graphite pencils with a hint of colour. :)

Dors said...

Thank you Janet for your lovely comment. You know I have some Derwent graphitint pencils..I had forgotten all about then... Half a brain I would be dangerous. LOL
Thanks for reminding me.
Now I have an excuse to do a similar one. hehehe.
Your a star.

Sounds like you had fun with this Dors. Good job and interesting choices you used. I like using graphite and colored pencil together, but not tried ink yet. I'll be looking forward to the next one you do! : )

Dors said...

Thank you Barbara. I appreciate your comments. I'm back to graphite at the moment. but I will definitely do another like this.
