What’s this?

Are my eyes decieving me or did I got a lot of hits today? haha. I usually get about 30 – 40 average hits a day but this is pretty cool. The most hits I ever got was in Feb 26, 2008, 107 hits. lol. This is not the first time I’ve hit around the 80’s but its nice to see it jump like that. haha. Anyways, here’s another sneek peek on our Moleskine exchange between my cousin Derrick and I.

This drawing is based on Nanton’s two beautiful fully-restored Grain Elevators on north-bound Highway 2 here in Alberta. I’ve been only there twice but I’d like to go back.  I drew this with Winsor & Newton watercolor, Staedler pigment liner, and Prisma Pencil Crayons. Usually when I draw, I don’t plan out how the drawing should look like in the end, I just go as I go along.

I’m pretty suprised by the outcome (that’s usually the best part of drawing – seeing the finish product). I was going to leave the sky with just blue watercolor that I painted on but I decided to scribbled on some white pencil crayon to give it a bit more characteristic and a bit of purplish blue crayon to blend it in with the blue. It was pretty risky but it turn out pretty darn good, dont ya think? =)

UPDATE: I ended up having 99 hits at the end of the day. lol. I was just one hit away from 100!!!

  1. you are very skilled at colour rendering!
    you use copics too 🙂
    I’ve only started colouring in my illustrations recently.. I was very much a black & white girl.
    your workspace is amazing.
    i’m still pretty amateur at drawing, it’s so great to hear feedback from someone who’s more experienced than me 🙂
    I look forward to seeing more of your great work.

  2. TerriLynne,
    This is a beautiful drawing. You should be proud of yourself. I like the rich colours that you’ve added.
    I like working on the Moleskine sketchbook paper surface. When I apply watercolour, it does not absorb, but sits on the surface and this can make a lovely texture for landscapes. It’s a little more difficult if you want a flat surface.

  3. Thanks K for your comment. It’s actually quite fun to watercolor on the Moleskine Sketchbook. I guess because it a different type of surface.
