Scribble Sketch - Pukearoa Maungaturoto


One of the first things you see as you head off the main State Highway is Pukearoa. It's a large hill once known in the earlier part of the 20th century as Punga Hill. This is one of my sit in the car and scribble it quick attempts. Did it today when I should have been doing the shopping!!!

  6. Actually they are really easy. Just stick the brush it some water shove in on the colour wet it a bit and there's a start for ya. more water you add the lighter the shade and you can mix em up as you go.

  7. YEah you say that like its easy! LOL Okay Okay I'll try them...I dont know why they seem to scare me...guess cause they are so watery...LOL I have to actually draw something decent to color in! LOL I have seen and read these books and seen art with watercolor, and then I look at what I have done and think NO WAY they cheated somehow! LOL Oh by the way....almost 12:30 am here, no sleep!

  8. Half after midnight??? You should be in bed girl!!! I think I need to look up Alwyn Crawshaw for you. He's a neat guy and the one that changed my attitude about water colours. Now I use them and keep on experimenting. Just give it a go. Don't worry if it isn't the same - thats how you learn. Books are one thing experimenting is another. Just scribble and throw water colour on it and have fun.
