Adventures In Watercolor 2

In the second week of class, we moved on to still life and flowers from real life. I was still struggling a bit with the shapes and how to create light/shadow, but I did improve slightly.


My painting and the real-life setup, for comparison

We also tried our hands at portraits – humans or animals (again, by copying from existing paintings or photos.) I’m completely hopeless when it comes to drawing people, so I chose a rooster. He turned out… OK-ish, I guess? I can’t get the face and the eyes right, so it looks like he’s in shock 😛

    These are great, Salazar! You are getting so good! Keep up the great work!

    And I can relate. I’m no good at drawing people or figures either. That’s why I mostly stick with landscapes and still life. 😉

    Your rooster is very cute!
