The A4 watercolour was based on the previous drawing of a cutting from my garden.
Unfortunately, I had not been feeling well the last few days, nothing serious but not well enough to sketch. So I failed my own daily sketch challenge the start. Anyway, nothing stops me picking it up again later. Meanwhile I just do what I can. Yesterday, I did a pencil drawing of a porcelain statue of a goddess of mercy I bought from my last holiday in Hong Kong.
I gathered some very ripe pears from the fruit bowl. I did a pencil outline first and do the rest wet-on-wet.
These shells were collected from different trips. They reminded me good times. The sketch is also no underline pencil drawing. It is on 150g watercolour A4 paper.
I continued with my no line watercolour sketch approach. I found this little statue with not smooth contours challenging.
I picked up a bunch of oak leaves while walking home this morning. I have done a quick watercolour sketch in my 150g cartridge sketchbook without pencil. Though I like line drawings, I want to be able to paint watercolour without relying on line for definition.
It is heavy rain today. So we cancelled our plan for walking. I sketched a home plant instead.
