Join Will Kemp for an in-depth discussion in this video Watercolor markers, part of Drawing Foundations: Sketching the Landscape.
- [Voiceover] So for this sketch I'm just going…to be starting with a 6B pencil, and then I can…block in the basic shapes, and then start to…add some subtle colors into the sketch.…(gentle acoustic guitar)…So now I've got the basic line drawing in…just with the pencil.…
What I'm gonna introduce to use some color,…is what are called watercolor markers.…And these are just like marker pens,…but each end of them has got a…pigmented watercolor into it.…So I can draw onto my sketch,…and these are so good for when you're outdoor sketching,…'cause you can just carry them with you,…and then once I've drawn on some of the pigment…onto the paper, what I can then use,…is what's called a brush pen.…And a brush pen, this is slightly different than the…other brush pen, just instead of ink,…it's just got water into it.…
So I can use this to paint on top of the…watercolor pigment that I put on with this pen,…and it'll all work together really nicely.…So I'm just gonna start here, and this is with…a phthalo blue, I can start to sublty put some of that in…
