I am exhausted! LOL! Artist was: Designer, Painter, Calligrapher | Jim Bray I feel like I learned a lot! I have absolutely ZERO instruction in watercolor so that was new... I got some really great feedback on my work. He was very encouraging and thought I had a good eye for it. He told me not to fret the technical stuff now, that it would come with experience and more time working with the medium. And also to remember that he and a couple other people in the workshop have been painting 30+ years instead of my measly couple. I may have been convinced to try doing some 'real' pieces to try to enter in some shows. I haven't been in an art show in 6? years. Kind of a scary prospect. I don't think I'm ready. I just keep coming back to something my high school art teacher said to me which was: "Okay, so you can draw. Now what are you going to do with it?" My answer is still, I don't know! But I want to do something worthwhile... I gathered up all my work to bring tomorrow to show the lady running the workshop. I'll be gone from 7 am to 10 pm tomorrow. Anyways, just 2 today, most was demos. I've never done a landscape before... I had no reference. No freaking clue what to do. lol I guess it could have gone worse. I really needed another color to fade between the one grey and blue but I didn't have it. So I bought it today LOL. I thought about not posting this one because it sucks lol. I'm not done so it could be salvageable maybe. Right now his left ear is obnoxiously long and he looks crosseyed because I didn't get to finish the eyes. I do like the color though, trying to use less colors because I tend to go crazy. There's only 3 colors here. I think I can fix it. I know what to do, just got to work on it. Tomorrow I am bringing reference pictures. Btw. While I'm here... I'll probably post these in the sketch a day thread too later. (Once I get better cropped pictures) All these are inked pretty much directly with very minimal sketch (some have no sketching done). So that was different for me. I think drawing without being able to erase is good practice for me to just go with it. Not done yet: I love this one: (the green on the left is NOT that green in RL) Just ink Oh and those are actually watercolor pencils and I did them a few days ago before the workshop.
