In the Shade in Portland

 I've been struggling for a long time to make my watercolor sketches have more contrast. It seems to take lots of layers and I don't always have the patience for that. On the bottom sketch, I eventually got out my gray markers and pushed it farther to the dark side.

I know some people have special mixes for the darkest of darks. Do you have any favorite combinations?

  1. Have you tried making sure that your watercolors are fully activated by a thorough wetting? These look lovely Vicky.
