attempt to a watercolour portrait

seeing the image on the computer i've realized her left eye is smaller than the right one. but well, it's a study and one attempt to do a portrait only with WC without pencil first as I usually do.

EDM # 106= draw something tart or sour

i don't know very much the meaning of the words tart / sour, i mean in which cases can it be applied, if metaphorically. i found this woman had a very acid mood. the explanation is in the sketch, i added it with paint shop pro. i also did this one from the LCD from my camera. I'm so happy with it, I only bought it less than a month ago!

EDM#124= draw something yellow

i found this fish was suitable for this challenge. it was a beautiful yellow it had. this is a quick pencil sketch then added WC

i sketched this one while the fishes were moving, it captivated me to realize i needed to work really fast. i added some pencil after the WC.

yesterday i went to a sketch contest at the museum of natural sciences. i sketched for a while. i forgot to take a photo of the one i did for the contest. i didn't get a prize or anything but the important for me is to participate and to spend a nice day with my friends.

i did this one after a photo i took of a cat outside the museum, and directly from the 1,5" LCD display of the camera. it was fun.

this is a quick sketch i did yesterday during one of the classes. i see i need to practise more. i wish i can find the time to do it. life is getting too boring without being able to draw as much as i'd like. i guess i should fix a couple of things...
