Went to the art store today and bought some stuff to start playing with watercolor. Watched some videos by Kelly Eddington for instruction. Here’s what I came up with.
This first one is just an experiment with the new brushes I bought, which were pretty inexpensive, and I could tell when using them. At some point, I should consider getting some nicer tools to work with.
I added some ink to each of those to see how it would work with the color. These next two were wash experiments. In both cases, small hairs from the brush were coming out and winding up in the wet paint. Once the paint dried, the brush hairs wiped right off the page, but not without first leaving behind small dark lines of color where they sat.
Finally, these next two were were fun to make and to watch how the colors interact with one another.
