I was so frustrated I gave up again and painted instead. The Problem with that was I had left my paints at work. So I searched my house, found these VERY old Sakura water colors, a brand new brush still in it's packaging and an also new portable palette. It was messy to get it set up as some of the paints were dry and I had to puncture or tear open the tubes but turns out they work just fine. I actually love some of the colors even more than the set I normally use, the Prussian blue is incredible. I may do a painting in nothing but Prussian blue and payne's gray as that has always been my favorite too.
Here's some color practice, to see if I liked the colors. I got the texture by dabbing them with a paper towel before they dried.
Then I did a sketch after reading the free assignments on "make art that sells" website. I haven't purchased their latest e-class about illustrating children's books that starts today or tomorrow but I wish I could. It looks great.
Happy Sunday sketches all!
