Sketches from Wednesday’s watercolor sketch class on bird painting. We began with gesture painting. The sketch below shows how I first sorted out the simple shapes for the painting of the purple bird (on aquaboard, 8″x8″).
From today’s watercolor sketch class. Process: we did a color impression (below left, then began again with a sketch in hard (HB) pencil and added watercolor to that watercolor.
These demo sketches were made on mixed media paper.
