VSW: Max’s Car, 1

Max Vanderwyst offered his lovely car images and I still went first for the building image.
What can I say? Old habits die hard.  But I’d like to do some cars, so….

It was a lovely building to draw, and the car classed it up!

I used grisaille to shadow, but I used the Super5 Frankfurt ink in a water-brush, and didn’t get the brush loaded enough for the large areas so they are a bit smudgy.
It didn’t make a difference when I splashed on color later,
but it is something to remember — load even your water-brush with
enough wet wash in that screwy plastic holder.

Moleskin A4 Watercolor Journal, Pentalic HB woodless pencil,
Pentel Aquash Water Brush with Super5 Frankfurt ink (Amazon when they have it or buy from Europe) for grisaille, Pilot Parallel pen with De Atramentis Document Black ink,
Platinum Carbon Pen with Platinum Carbon ink waterproof cartridges,
White Uniball Signo, Holbein, DS Primatek watercolors, and Daniel Smith Watercolors.
