My favourite medium is graphite, and therefore it is the one in which most of my work is done. I love the simplicity & beauty of the varying tones in greyscale drawings, whereas coloured work can sometimes become cluttered and overwhelming. I also find that graphite allows me to capture all of the minute details which as a perfectionist I find most enjoyable to capture.
Coloured Pencil, Acrylic & Watercolour
As my skill as an artist has developed, I have begun to explore a greater variety of mediums, combining these with my favourites & a number of techniques to create interesting new images and also further my artistic skills.
Combining watercolour or coloured pencil with graphite is one of my favourite techniques now. I find it helps to enhance what could otherwise be a very average image & give it a modern or eye-catching twist. A few subtle coloured highlights in an image or a simple watercolour background can make a huge difference.
