Fast Save with Ink

Sunday, June 10, 2018

Sometimes, a direct watercolor sketch just doesn't turn out. Last weekend, my first attempt at capturing the Garden of Eden swimming hole in Felton was a hot mess. The colors just ran together on the smooth Zeta paper in my sketchbook. So when I was waiting for an event to start yesterday, I took out a black marker and idly started drawing into it.

Zing! Apparently this watercolor just needed some line to bring it to life. (Sorry about the glare on the photo, by the way; I've been using my phone to shoot the challenge sketches instead of scanning them, to save time.)
