I found some crocuses while taking a walk during my lunch break yesterday & took some photos. Last night I decided to try & do another ink drawing & then color it in with watercolors & those crocuses were the subject. I sketched it out in light pencil again, then outlined in Micron pen, & (a more simplistic outline than I did with Mu yesterday), & then colored it in with watercolors.
I think it came out ok, but I’m kind of meh about it. I think I probably could have done a better job if I’d stuck with pencil, or even just pen. I just need to practice a lot more with watercolors, I guess.
I also decided to color in my cat, Mu:
I’m not totally pleased with it – in fact, I think I prefer the original ink drawing – but I also like this better than the crocuses! But again, I just need to learn more about watercolors. Her true coloring doesn’t really show in this drawing/painting – she’s got a lot of grays, black, & browns in her, more than what I conveyed here.
So, that’s all for today. I’ve got a busy weekend ahead of me, but I’ll be sure to get some drawing in & either post the results this weekend if I’m able, or on Monday.
