More small watercolors of this boy in even more jackets! I am so ready for fall. Messed with his shapes/design, and practiced glazing graded washes.
Also, found a good mix for splotchy light denim! The pants in the left one were way too teal, and when I layered a tiny thin wash of red oxide on top, it not only neutralized but added texture.
I was so excited to get the tape off this morning, but I went to sleep instead just in case the paper might still be a little damp. I am really pleased with the outcome, and with Cobalt Teal - gosh that is just the cleanest, prettiest teal-blue I have ever seen. All the M Graham paints I tried here were like that though, just… really vivid and clear.
The little white dots were made with frisket, and I almost forgot to pick them off. I only noticed because I was like wait.. browngreen spot on the watercan? mmmm…..
Next up… bonefishes maybe!
Sketches from tonight. Gotta start somewhere!!! Definitely need to work on my design/rendering skills. And some more angles with my other creatures.
