As the song goes...”You must go on with the show”...so here we go! Welcome back Bryan!
Soo...ironically (or possibly creepy) my post has something to do with watercolors too.
A while back Clint posted on his blog a link to Nick Tay's work. I really loved how he played with color against the charcoal drawings. Even the ones the were just a spot of color on the entire page. I thought his drawings were beautiful and brilliant. I was so inspired that I wanted to do some watercolors as well.
I was doodling at work and thought that these would make great ink and watercolor pieces.
I picked up some watercolors at A.C.Moore and started experimenting a little bit. These were my first tries.
These didn't turn out exactly the way I wanted but I am just starting out with these. It's really tough to get a certain kind of sophisticated control with watercolors. At least I think so.
Anyway, since I wasn't having too much luck with the inked pieces, I decided to just play around with the colors and textures for now until I got a better handle on the medium. This is what I came up with.
I think I like watercolors. The cleanup is definitely easier compared to acrylic or oil paints.
