November Watercolour Challenge: Derwent Watercolour Pencils

 Leisure Painter and The Artist Magazine


 Rabbit  created using Derwent Watercolour pencils on top of my usual watercolour techniques

November Watercolour Challenge and Prize

I haven't shared a watercolour challenge for November as I have been really busy working on Christmas Exhibitions and  looking forward to reading the first final proof of my completed book which has been a full project for me this year.

For those who are missing submitting paintings I have a wonderful opportunity for followers of my blog to participate in an online challenge with the Leisure Painter and The Artist Magazine who are running a feature of mine with a fabulous prize of over £100 worth of Derwent Watercolour pencils for the winner.

I have been working with   various ways of creating texture for a variety of subjects over the last few months and loved creating fur over my usual watercolour results by adding final touches  with watercolour pencil.


For full details of the competition please follow this link and forward your own original art  and ideas to win this fabulous prize. I will be selecting the winning painting and look forward to seeing what you come up with.

Good Luck as this  is a really great way to stretch your creative imagination!

This rabbit is magnificent! I am studying the eye and how luminous it is and how you bring it to life. The delicacy around the ear is also impressive. I love your style and I'm busy trying to create that "eye". Perhaps, in your next DVD???? I received your first DVD and I'm enjoying it and look forward to receiving the book from Amazon. I'm also trying to locate the circular palette you use, but cannot locate it in the U.S. Thanks for the inspiration!

This is beautiful - the colours glow. I tried to work out what caught my attention first - I think it's the eye. You really do know how to catch an animal with simple brush strokes - wish I had a fraction of your talent.

I am interested in purchasing a print of your lovely rabbit! Would that be possible? I live in the USA. Thank you!
