Watercolour playtime

Here is a watercolour sketch I did a couple of weeks ago. A familiar face closeup that I like but decided to be daring and bold with the colour. I love seeing other people's work like that and was hoping to achieve something different. Well it is different. Not what I was aiming for but a start. I lost a lot of my shading and contour on the face with the mix of colours. Bit more planning next time maybe. The eyes turned out pretty well so not all is lost.

One of the online facebook groups I am a member of is having a mini challenge drawing and painting some crab apples photos that one kind lady offered up. There have been some great interpretation done. Here is my attempt. Again I was aiming for loose blending of colour. I have captured that to some degree. It is slowly getting there. The shadows need work but at least I remembered them this time :)

Was just nice to splash paint around again.


  1. I keep trying wc. Yours are lovely.

  2. Thank you so much both of you. Watercolour is one of my favourite mediums, I love it but even after more than 20 years (on and off) I still feel like a novice. But it is so much fun.

  3. I love watercolor, but they are hard! You really seem to have a lovely handle on it.
