As I mentioned before, I’ve been sketching on watercolor paper with the full intent to paint them traditionally, rather than digitally – but I’m a little nervous to start. What if I ruin it?! You know the feeling? With digital art, you always have CTRL+Z, but with watercolors, you can’t change it once you put down the paint. So nerve-wracking! 💦 💦 💦
I didn’t want to let that feeling hold me back, so I looked up some tutorials on Youtube and started painting some small pictures to break the ice! This painting of mountains and rivers was made using simple techniques from this video by Mr. Otter Art Studio:
The idea of a simple landscape using washes sounded easy enough for even a beginner! And it was a lot of fun. 😀 Though, I think I’ll practice a bit more before I try to paint one of the sketches! (^__^);;
And a close-up of the painting:
