This class was amazing, but so difficult for me! I tend to overcompilcate everything and kicking this habit is really hard. Also, time constraints always freak me out and make me super tense for some reason.
Something I struggle with a lot is separating things in the foreground from the background. No matter how hard I try, I usually end up with an indistinguishable mess. I guess I really need to work on that.
I used a waterbrush filled with slightly diluted indian ink for all of these sketches. I wasn't too happy with this choice, because the brush kept going dry and then I squeezed too hard, so it just spilled out massive blobs of ink.
The first two pictures are some practice sketches I drew before the timed challenges. I used random pinterest pictures and a book I had lying around:
