Jones’ Pump Jack

Jones’ Pump Jack

Copyright 2011 Valerie Jones

This piece was done with Prismacolor Colored Pencils and Derwent Watercolour Pencils.  The pump jack was completed first using the Prismacolor Colored Pencils.  I completed the pump jack first as an experiment.  The colored pencils acted as a crayon resist to the watercolor,  just as I’d hoped it would.  No masking needed.

I completed the background using the Derwent Watercolour Pencils.  This was achieved using a wash on the background first.  To create the textures, I dipped the watercolour pencils in water to soften.  This is a great way to create texture.

Have a wonderful day living creatively!
