I started this painting Friday, I think, and worked on it for 4 periods.
Since I got put into Drawing and Painting 1 again [I'm a Portfolio II student, which I believe is the highest or 2nd highest art we have] I get to work on whatever project I want to.

My mom says I've been making immense improvement in my watercolor technique. Even my teacher was impressed. Anyway, I'm going into graphic design in college so this will be part of my portfolio.

Wow! That's watercolor? I wish I could do something that cool with watercolor (I can't paint worth shit with that stuff, won't do what I tell it to). It's really great.

Beautiful! Smiley

I love working with black watercolor on white paper. It's the only watercolor technique I can handle, just can't stand the pastels.

I so understand why you'd put that in your portfolio.

I wish someone would make that for me.

That is absolutely AMAZING. That's the best thing I've ever seen.

Wow, that's great. I can NOT for the life of me figure out how to do black and white watercolor...I just can't get it down right. Any special techniques/suggestions? I'm fine with color...it's the plain black that throws me off.

That's an awesome rendering of Tim Burton.  The crazy hair, his pose and expression...everything is so well done.  I'm curious to see the rest of your portfolio.

justxlove: I suck at watercolors too, or I did. The more you work with them the better you get. I believe this is my 3rd watercolor project. I love your icon by the way, bradley hathaway is a tool.

decibel: I understand your hatred for pastels. Pastels for me is like rubbing your fingers on sandpaper.

littleone1098: Really it was just black watercolor on white paper. The only advice I can give is to put your color on in layers. Just put a little color on at a time, blotting it off with a paper towel until you figure how dark you want it. Once you get the right combination just let it dry? I don't know, I'm not really an expert.   Roll Eyes
