watercolor practice by rainfreezer watercolor practice by rainfreezer
i hate to submit these mini drawings that aren't even full pieces D: but these are really all i feel up for right now idk i don't have the motivation to finish up owed art ; - ;

sooo last year for my birthday my friend gave me a watercolor kit for my birthday but i never used it

earlier =Capukat was doing watercolor so i pulled out my kit and tried it out LOL
there were minor annoyances with the brush hairs :I
but otherwise it was great! i used red and yellow and i had extra, so i drew a red tree and a wing and stuff haha
the squiggly blob under the lined koi is supposed to be fire LOL
i drew scales on some of the goldfish too but you can't see it DDDD:

thanks to capu too for all the tips for starting watercolor!! i even taped it down onto a cardboard circle to prevent curling
but as you can see even in the picture, the paper distorted D': this is just sketchbook paper, a little thicker than normal paper
obviously i need real watercolor paper ahhh

hopefully i can get better at watercolors soonn :')
anyone notice the heart on the apple

haha thank you!

there's really not much to learn about painting with watercolors, it's actually quite easy! just comes down to what you end up liking to do with it (:

This is really pretty! I especially love the linelss fish, the way the tails seem to flow and fade is a really neat way to draw them, they really look like they're swimming in water. And such pretty colours too, and nice belnding of them :3 I do see a bit of scale-like texture on the upper fish, it looks really good. I hope you'll play more with wathercolours, you're already good at it!

You're welcome. I really enjoy watercolour as well, but it's easier to just put away a pencil drawing or somthing digital, so I never really get to it ...

The worst is when you are on the second floor and the tap is below, and the water gets too dirty to use, soyou rush down the stairs to get some new and when you're back again, the thing you were working on has dried and now there's ugly edges all over the painting -_-

i was too stingy since it was my first time using my watercolors so i only used two colors and i got a bunch of water and didn't even color it much p:

That is SO UNFAIR -mope mope mope-

It's amazing how little colour you actually need ... I tend to put on too much and it gets all lumpy and thick xD
