My favourite illustrators style to draw was Kelly Smith, i loved working with pencil as it was my favourite media to use in art, I enjoy shading to add light and dark tones, the slight hints of watercolour added a pop of colour which contrasted nicely to the grey tones of the pencil. I didnt really like using watercolour as i found it a difficult media to use. I found that it was difficult to create that light fluid colour that you get when using watercolour.
it was also very difficult adding shading to images as the paper sometimes wrinkled and ripped, a major challenge i encountered was that the watercolors dried very quickly meaning i had to work fast. It took me a lot of practice to get this right.
