i haven't used it enough consistently to really know what i'm doing. which is why i decided to start playing around with it everyday. so far i've been doing a rudimentary pencil sketch then going in over the top with gouache. i draw fewer details since everything gets covered up anyway.
on the shells below i drew the bottom one with pencil then switched the position of the shell and just painted the one on top without drawing beforehand. and all the while i was doing it i was thinking of how much better it would look if i drew it with a nice inky pen then doused it with watercolor when it was dry.
but of course that would really defeat the purpose wouldn't it?
and i wouldn't want to do that. not in the first inning anyway. maybe by the 4th i will be down for some purpose defeating. but not yet. i'm still in the gung ho stage.
happy friday working stiffs! monday is a holiday. ahhhhhhhhhhh. 72 hours worth of chillaxing. sends a shiver up my spine just thinking about it. ya know?
