I know that the best way to get over fear-of-watercolor-mistakes is to make a lot of them. So I finally dove into my journals, coloring sketches and moving graphite with water. the sketch above was partly made on-site; then colored later, using mostly Daniel Smith water colors.
The sketch below was painted from images from two years ago which I documented; it was a good day but it brought the devil into our lives! I now commemorate it because that time is OVER! Yay! Kenahora! I liked all the textures I saw through my lens that day.
I used my new Cocoiro pens on the right side of the sketch, with Daniel Smith watercolors and Pitt pens, and tried not using pencil lines (eek) for the cover plate for “DUMP NO WASTE.” I like the effort; I am unhappy with the line work because given a pencil I can do better!
