I am continuing with my watercolour sketches. I filled my sketchbook and made myself a new one to help keep the momentum going. I used the pamphlet style once again as it is quick and easy. I did make it a little larger with 12 pages instead of just 8, which meant I used one and a half sheets of watercolour paper, Arches 180gsm.
I am focusing on trying to maintain strong colours while working wet in wet. I have been watching some tutorials on youtube and been picking up a few different techniques to try. I find it very useful to be able to actually watch the artist applying and working with the paint rather than just read from a book. Mind you I still love being able to go back over things in a book.
The trees in the background here were done with a flat brush, not something I usually use but I liked the effect created. The rocks in the foreground were painted wet in wet then I pushed the paint around with an icypole stick for some extra texture. Not sure all the elements fit together here but happy with the individual aspects.
