Squiggly Lines

Updated on 29/12/2022


I wanted to exercise my blending techniques, depth, perspective and shading work, so I just pencilled a few lines on a blank piece of paper and went from there.

Finished artwork with all the supplies used to create it.

I coloured the main lines and blended them using Polychromos and filled the gaps between them with Albrecht Dürer Watercolour.

The supplies depicted in the above image are:

I’m using these brushes to apply odourless mineral spirits for the Polychromos Colour Pencils line and water for the Albrecht Dürer Watercolour Pencils line.

This is the finished Squiggly lines piece.

To frame the entire piece I decided to go with a white rectangular outline. I’m quite happy the POSCA marker in white made a bit of a mess of a line. Still working on the layering techniques and the amount of pressure to apply as to not destroy the paper I’m working on.
