Week Three of Imaginary Trip to Italy

This weeks assignment was a lot of fun.  We had to do quick sketches and sometimes use just the paint to sketch.  Needless to say, I did use a pencil for the basics of the window.  I only used organic vermillion, phthalo blue GS, and Hansa Yellow Medium for all three.  It really helps to unify the pictures.

This is mainly thinks, but also has pen intense pencils, and pan pastels.
