Just add Flower and Water by Paul-Shanghai Just add Flower and Water by Paul-Shanghai
The quickest drawing I think I have ever done, just to keep the whole water genre going I thought I would draw a rose made of water.
Bristol Board Smooth A3, Mechanical 4B Pencil, traditional HB and 8B pencils - blending stumb for shading and fading :)  By the way the shadows in the corner are not some fancy pencil or software trick - just took the photo in poor light which caused shadows acoss the picture - I have left them on their becuase I quite like them :)

If you want to see how you grow a rose out of water just press the thumbnail here

My first thought: 2 roses marry ... they say, "I dew."

hmmm big question and only a small space to write an answer!  I guess the only couple of things I remember when drawing water is that a) it has hard crisp edges, contrary to what most people think, if you look closely at a bubble or stream of water you can see almost sharp lines - so a fine pencil/pen to draw the lines is important.  b) I always use my blending stump (When its dirty with graphite) to blend inside the bubble/stream of water, pressure allows me to get different shades and the softness is what i think makes it look more realistic. c) Contrast is key, try to keep the darks very dark, and the whites really white, these give the impression of shadow and form.  Other than that I am not sure.....oh yes, just keep practising, that is what I am doing :)
