    I can see these sketches in a cooking magazine or cookbook. Looks like you’re making some homemade spaghetti sauce in that blender. xo

    Delivious! I’ve always wanted to do this kind of drawings in pen and ink, but I tend to always complicate it. I like how the pen and the color are balanced and share a similar “importance” in the drawing. I always tend to over prioritize the drawing and then add the watercolor like a finish!

      It’s colored pencil, not watercolor…maybe that helps with the balance? Much easier to control and layer colors for me.

        I’ve never tried colored pencils.. Maybe in the future 🙂

        Is there a brand in particular I should go for? I only ever remember trying the kids version and don’t have the fondest memories of them 😉

        Good question. I have lots of different kinds from when I used to buy them individually just for color when I was doing textile designs. My favorites are some a friend gave me from the Frick Museum, but when I asked the museum who made them they wouldn’t (or couldn’t) tell me. I like Derwent and Prismacolor. It’s also interesting that sometimes different brands won’t blend with each other. I’ve used Caran D’ache too. Most brands also make watercolor pencils, which you can blend with water after you draw for a watercolor effect. I haven’t tried them much though.
        If you can try out individual pencils at the store (some places here let you do that) you can see the type of texture they have and if you like it. Less expensive than buying a whole set and discovering you don’t like it!

        That’s true! Does it matter what kind of paper you use? I like to use watercolor paper for different media, but I imagine that the rough surface could make the coloration a little uneven

        I like the texture of watercolor paper, but usually I just use heavy and slightly textured drawing paper. I don’t like smooth paper to draw on, and I think texture helps give dimension in color blending

        I think I’ll pick some up and try them on my watercolor paper 🙂
