I have been keeping to my resolution of painting/drawing/working every day, but haven’t had anything complete to share until today. I’m still playing with these watercolors to get the feel of the medium again, as I want to do some more original, serious pieces with them.
So, this was interesting to paint. I’ve been using the Arteza watercolor pen brushes, but was having trouble layering. So I ended up trying some watercolors from a pan to mix, and did not get the colors I wanted. However, my Prismacolor watercolor pencils did help with some shading and details. As always, learning lessons…
Well, as you can see by the below image, landscapes are not my forte. However, I am going to keep trying a few to improve my technique. I have no real desire to paint landscapes, but it’s a nice distraction from the human form from time to time.
Well, my other business has been booming and taken me away from my art…however, new watercolor brushes and a vacation revamped my goals to explore this work about sensuality. I’m going in some different directions and exploring/experimenting with different techniques and ideas.
