Three Ladies and A Goof

Some new watercolor sketches. I'm trying to make the first few brushstrokes do as much work as possible - making big shapes - then going back and tightening up with some ink.

And here are some sketches for a comic I've got in production ...

Trouble Alley

These guys just won't go away ... I guess I'll have to finish that comic with them, then.

Smithson Sketches #3

Here's another pic of Gemma from Smithson. Why that pedestal has a lamp and a glass on it, I have no idea. This was a test painting on some new watercolor paper I'm trying out - Arches hot-pressed.

And here's a painting of Gemma's roommate Micki, another test painting on Canson watercolor paper. I think I like the smoother paper better.

Clouds

Man, I feel like I've really improved the color in my paintings with these new paints. If you paint in watercolors and would like a decent explanation of why various colors behave as they do, I recommend checking out the book Transparent Watercolor Wheel by Jim Kosvanec. It separates the paints into transparent, staining, semi-transparent and semi-opaque colors, gives paint mixing recommendations, and so on.

Here are some fluffy clouds, to go with my fluffy brain at this hour ...
