…in favour of spontaneity

Practicing spontaneous illustration, sometimes i get too wind up over details, so I’m trying to be more loose and just see where the colors takes me….and I miss summertime and the easy living.

The Sun came out today after a few days with rain, so I took my sketchbook outside to sit in the sun.

going back to watercolors

It’s been years, with a few exceptions, since I’ve been painting entirely with watercolors without adding some digital work afterwards. I think I’ll be doing more work like that, its actually relaxing compared to doing digital work…and there’s something special to get paint on your fingers (…and hands, and arms…. )
