Very far behind on the Virtual Paintout, this is from months ago in Norway. It is a 5" x 7" pencil drawing on 300# watercolor board. I want to go back over it with transparent dyes, but it's taken me this long to get this far with it, so might just leave it.


  1. This is wonderful Amy. What kind of transparent dyes do you use?

  2. Thanks Nancy. I've had the same four bottles of Dr. Ph. Martin's Synchromatic Transparent Water Colors since art school years ago. When I saw this view of Norway on Google Maps it seemed to fit perfectly with my prussian blue and beige. I also have a payne's gray and ultra marine. Soon it will be necessary to replace these bottles with something else, just don't know what yet. Now I will spray this drawing with a fixative and go over it with color. :-)
