Well today did not go as planned. Not at all. Yesterday’s mannequin sketch completed another of my sketchbooks. I had already decided in advance that once I had filled up the sketchbook I was on I would move on to my watercolour sketchbook next and attempt to do a watercolour painting every day until I filled that sketchbook. Unfortunately today turned out not to be the best day for embarking on new ventures. By the time the day was over however I was seriously regretting that choice and wishing I had just one more page left in my old sketchbook.
Alas that was not the case so I sucked it up and made a quick attempt at a basic watercolour sketch. This was the result. It basically reflects my mood at the time of painting although I might have used darker colours if it wasn’t a watercolour. Hopefully over the course of the next couple months as I work on filling up my watercolour sketchbook I will learn a bit more about how to work with watercolours to achieve different effects.
