Natural textures with watercolour

Natural textures with watercolour - student project

I missed the live session so I'm super happy that skillshare made this video because I really wanted to get some practice with drawing / painting textures (: Thank you Rosalie for the great class and top tips!

 

Natural textures with watercolour - image 1 - student project

 

I didn't sketch out the patterns first as I knew I would get caught up in trying to make it perfectly like the photo, just went straight in with the different areas of colour. I found the whole process very relaxing as I could let go of how the image 'should' look and just focus on what elements I found interesting. I feel this in itself was such a great practice and something I can remember when I'm doing any kind of experiment or drawing.
