The friendly Troll
Didn’t I say in one of my earlier posts that I am going to practice figure drawing? Well, I don’t know whether drawing this little guy here could be considered as figure drawing, but a drawing exercise it was. I also practiced using mixed media in this piece: after having inked the sketch I coloured it with watercolour paints. When these were dry I went over the painting with my markers in order to ad d somecontrast to the painting. The finishing touches were done with my Polychromos coloured pencils.
The more I practise with my watercolour paints the more I like them. I use them on dry paper, and with not so much water. Doing it this way you can get rich colours.
