Going after my gear...

Going after my gear...  - student project

Hello, this class was amazing.

For me, the observing and asking open question session was the most valuable. The color-chart and watercolor techniques are awesome!

I am starting out by gathering the gear I have at home:

I usually sketch using pencil. Must find a waterproof ink pen and a nice handbook able to receive watercolor.

Here my testing with the colors:

Now I realized how crazy is to read my colorchart :)

Omg, just found a 0.2 pen and a moleskine booklet in my drawer. I knew that I had something interesting there... Testing, it holds well the watercolor. Just need a piece of cardboard to protect the backpaper from beeing wet!

Now we are talking, new brushes! New pen (the right one is the good one)!

Thanks again for the lesson!
