Inktober Inspired Crystal Watercolor Tutorial
Posted on October 06 2021
Hi everyone, Mou Saha here with a tutorial on how to draw a natural citrine crystal with Pitt Artist Pen, Watercolors in Pans, and Goldfaber Watercolor pencils as part of The Inktober Challenge 2021!
Illustrator Jake Parker ‘created Inktober in 2009 as a challenge to improve his inking skills and develop positive drawing habits. It has since grown into a worldwide endeavor with thousands of artists taking on the challenge every year.’ I have compiled the materials list for you.
Mixed Media paper
Lightly sketch the outlines and facets of the crystal with Goldfaber HB Graphite sketch pencil.
Trace over the pencil lines with Extra Superfine Black Pitt Artist Pen. The India ink dries instantly and you can erase the pencil lines without fear of smudging any lines.
I decided to color my citrine crystal with warm tones of yellow and brown from the Watercolor Pan using the water brush included in the set.
To make the facets of the crystal look really bright and reflective, I added small finishing details with White #101, Silver # 251 and Gold # 250 Goldfaber Aqua Watercolor Pencils.
I hope you enjoyed today’s art tutorial with the Pitt Artist Pen, Watercolors in Pans, and Goldfaber Color Pencils and are inspired to create your own inky art.
