Watercolor Wonderland

…and so the animal exploration continues. I’ve been writing, watching videos and focusing on my thoughts. I feel like my prepration is similar to an actor preparing for the role. I don’t know. I keep going back and forth but in the end I feel I’m on the right track. I trust I am. IContinue reading “Watercolor Wonderland”

Creative Ways To Paint Trees

For a while I’ll be painting what I love to paint, trees. For this tree I used: – artist tape, watercolor paint, a blush brush and tempera paint. First I spot the tape in a tree shape. Then paint.

Sketch in Color

the color sketching has begun. This will be the Road Trip Color scheme. I wrote the story, created a story board, took notes, made revisions and it’s sketching time. I want to get used to painting without drawing with a pencil first. The color scheme makes sense because with any journey you have happy times.Continue reading “Sketch in Color”

A horibble no good very bad…

Yeah I busted out with salt for texture, mixed greens and blues to get various tones of green. I used Bombay India ink and yeah had a cool texture going on butContinue reading “A horibble no good very bad…”
