I’ve been experimenting a lot with watercolors over the past few weeks. My first few attempts tried a bit too hard at realism because it’s hard for me to shake my background with oil painting. I’m coming to terms with the fact that I need to embrace the loose and light nature of this medium. Since adopting this mindset I’m finally starting to find my groove and see big improvements.

(My first piece. I focused on detail in the faces and clothing which resulted in a creepy look)


watercolor_barca

(A few weeks in, I felt more comfortable experimenting with colors)

watercolor_drogba

(I started to rely more on ink for shading, and left the colors as one solid mass)
