Sketching Botanical Specimens with Watercolor Pencils




Materials Needed: 

  • Cardstock
  • PITT Artist Pens


1. Write out your words. I wrote out "Happy Halloween" for a fun halloween card using my PITT artist brush pens. I used Light Green 171 for the word "Happy" and Crimson 134 for the word "halloween."



2. Trace you letters with your Black 199 PITT artist pen.



3. Using your Black 199 PITT artist pen again, draw spider webs coming from the top corners of your page and attaching to your letters. I also added a little spider hanging down. 



4. Last I added shadows to my letters with my Warm Grey V 274 PITT artist brush pen.

Because she’s busy during the day, the night is when her creativity gets to explode into the world through lettering and messing around with watercolors. Her biggest advice would be to not compare your art to other people’s art! Be uniquely you!
