I learnt an interesting lesson over the weekend – you can only cut corners so often with water colors before it comes home to bite you. This bite was the ripping of the painting I was getting setup to draw.
After much cursing I set about preparing my watercolor paper correctly – although I had to do a half size as my backing wood was not very big at all.
Still the initial results showed me that the current paper I have is rubbish but I can get away with it for small pictures if I am patient with its preparation. Lesson learnt!
And the outcome was okish 😀
While I was waiting for the paper to dry I did a quick charcoal sketch
And I also did a few scribbles of things at work – taking about a minute to draw.
Writing wise I’m still on my post Nanowrimo break, will be back to editing soon.
