Soothing waters

Soothing waters - student project

I have created this drawing thanks to this class, and I am really happy with the results. It highly improves my understanding of colors !

Usually, when I draw, I design the lineart first, then go with colors quite randomly (I was really struggling with creating an overall mood thanks to color). This time, I first choose a palette from the ones provided, then decided to use those colors to find an idea. I used them for the lineart as well, which I never do. It pushed me to think differently, which was challenging but so rewarding.

I tried to use different coloring techniques than usual (I use mostly the monochromatic tool to color), by using watercolour brushes. I love the result, and the mood it adds to the drawing.

Thank you so much for your insight and advice !
