I have a lot of fun working on this at the end of a long day. Very relaxing and enjoyable to just follow step-by-step.
It was nice to see the difference between what I executed vs the instructor. Right now I only have a couple waterbrushes that don't hold much water in the brush itself, so my background was was pretty dry strokes rather than a true wash. I kinda liked the streakiness of that part, but would have like to get a more misty look on the island in the far background. I played with dropping some water directly onto the paper though and that helped.
I liked the tip for drawing the water ducks, creating water ripples, and the walkthrough of blending the colors. A fun project. :)
