I used Sakura colors to make this painting. I have never used actual watercolor brushes before but I purchased some basic brushes for this course.
Testing my brushes.
#Day2 Basic Pressure and Consistency
#Day4 Even Stripes
I cannot find the papers anymore :(. So, I will do them again later!
#Day5 Flat brushes and variations
I used this exercise as an opportunity to make a swatch palette! For both my watercolor palette and gouache set.
#Day 6 Angles and changes in directions
#Day 7 About Talent and Compound Curves
I found today&s practice particularly challenging. But I did found my "S"s were getting more consistent towards the end.
#Day 8 Extreme changes in direction
Revised some stripes...
#Day 9 Pressure changes 1/2
I've been busy busy busy, so I did not have a lot of time, but managed to find some to paint these. I found it challenging at first but when I started envisioning painting "feathers" it got a bit easier. I am not sure why. Maybe it is because I'm envisioning something concrete?
