I have been doing the 30x30directwatercolor challenge, just not everyday. Somedays, something else calls and I follow that direction. On other days, I do a little direct watercolor piece. Here are some recent pieces.
My favorite Indian bird, the Golden Oriole.
A little piece with Walter, a skull that sits on my desk and gets drawn and painted when I’m stuck for a subject.
And this study of a domed tower.
This, below, is how I would usually sketch that same structure.
Some days I’m happy to direct-watercolor. Other days, I miss line too much.
