Watercolor growing pains #1

This first set of watercolor sketches all took up to 2 hours I'd say - done via photos I took on a trip to Montreal.  May do something different for the next series.

Posted in order attempted:

People Gesture Drawing - Ink then tonal fills

Great warm-up exercise or general practice on getting accuracy or the impression from references

Animal characters - ref to imagined

Here's a catching up post for animals - want to get back into them soon.  I basically do a sketch from real reference, and then extrapolate and experiment from there

Vancouver Aquarium Drawing

MOSTLY - I did the big frog, chiwawa (sp?) and baby skunk prior to the trip to test the paper and materials.

I ended up doing almost all the sketching with ink, then use graphite to fill in some additional form information, lighting notes or visual separation of parts.

Roundup of people drawing sketching from both today and earlier this month - still reaching for volume over spending ultra long getting them presentable

SporeBloom Project - roughs

I've begun plugging my plant/mushroom/biology interest into a new project, which will be a fleshed out environment that (hopefully) you can later explore via a webpage.

Here's a collection of snippets from my sketchbook where a lot of the design is happening.

Doing some usual people sketching, which is slowing down a bit due to other projects  (getting back into animals lately)
