Well the challenge did shift my mind… I chose peeps to paint! All ink, sketched then hit with a waterbrush. These are always gambles… you can’t see the colors before you hit them with water — you have to try … Continue reading
Why do I always like them better cropped into squares!? One of the last images in my Hahnemühle Watercolour Journal… wobbly paper makes for a wobbly sky wash… cropped it is interesting, but larger looks like a bad wash! Let’s … Continue reading
