It was my sister’s birthday yesterday. I am not flush with cash at the moment, so I decided I would paint her a picture. Yes that’s right – paint! Im trying more often now to get used to watercolours (and colouring/hand drawn art in general). Pencil sketches I can do. Inked lined? Yep. But colour? Not my forte – and that is something I wanted to change. I’ve started to upload some of my latest work to Flickr, here is a selection (please forgive the quality of some of the shots, I find it quite difficult to get a good digital representation of a physical print. Scanning is useless, so Im using my SLR – Still trying to get the hang of it)
I am learning lots and lots from this watercolouring. What I am learning most is that this is mega fun. I’m slowely getting the hang of the brushes, and figuring out what sort of style works best for me. I’ve done two more since the other night. One that I’m not going to show because it’s pretty awful, but this one – I think is my new favourite ( Yeah, okay, she looks a bit like ET, but that will learn me for not sketching out the design first, and just painting. Enjoy!
