I’ve been spending a lot of time lately doing digital drawings in a new style.
The rest of the time I’ve been doing pen drawings in my sketchbook, using the same style 🙂
So I figured it was time for a visit back to watercolours, to make sure I kept my hands warm with the medium.
My last efforts ended up pretty decent, for my skill level, with a few marine paintings:
So I thought it would basically end up in the same way this time, you know.
I’ve got this now.. 🙂
Well, it didn’t turn out quite that way.
I didn’t use enough time planning, both in regards of colours and scenery, and did a quick sketch and wash:
I then rushed into the next layer, and before I knew it the painting was gone:
I’ll take it as a lesson, though, that you can’t simply «know watercolour painting» and expect a good outcome by just starting painting something.
But if you want to have a look at my watercolour paintings that did turn out quite well, you can do so in my gallery 🙂
