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!
