Haven't had too much time today. Made this crow in watercolors. I'm pretty happy with it.
hey reaping join with me, i'm also a beginner, so we'll have daily challenges from each other so that we can improve and help each other ?
you can add me on facebook or skype :
what you think please give a reply on my facebook messages or in my sketch book
Nice watercolors man with great mood.
Be careful of the anatomy.Keep up

thanks for commenting on my sketchbook.
Nice to see other beginners on this site, one thing I would say is to study structure more, you seem to be rendering surfaces over unsteady foundations, master drawing before tone, hope that wasn't too presumptuous,
Made this watercolor landscape in about 1h 30m. Not quite happy with it. I feel I overdid the trees, and they also lack depth. The excavator also looks flat, too outlined and protrudes from the picture.
Quick drawing of a firefighter from reference pic.
Another firefighter drawing(didn't bother completing it) and a simple watercolor landscape drawing.
New watercolor for today. Sailboat from reference picture. Quite happy with it. The ropes on the mast are too protruding, and I'm not satisfied with the skies and sea. Despite the shortcomings I'm happy with the outcome, since I still have everything to learn about watercoloring.
Thanks for checking out my SB, BlasteR. When I decided to start watercoloring about a week ago I bought a set of cheap watercolors by the Sang brand. It's in decent quality(by my newbie means).
Make notice that it's doable(i've done a few myself) to paint in your sketchbook, but not always reccommended. Use very little water, if else the paper will bulge pretty severely.
Todays update. Watercolor painting of an old windmill. I'm actually pretty happy with this one. The sky turned out pretty well, and I'm also happy with the actual windmill. If I had to point out something I'm not quite happy with, it would be the depth/feeling of the grassy field(seems a little flat and boring).
Been doing watercolors for just over one week now, and I feel that I've got off on a good start.
Have a nice weekend, folks.
Another update for today. Piece called 'Crazed Killer Bunny' done in Photoshop about a month ago.
Might aswell post a page of sketches. Children are being gut ripped.
New watercolor for today. Local landscape painted in 'still life'(?, from reality, not a picture). This is my first watercolor from life, and I'm quite happy with the result. I'm happy with the color scheme and landscape reproduction. Since the farm is the focal point I should've done more to bring it to focus. Lesson learned.
Hyggelig å se en annen nordmann her!
Vannmaleriene dine er stort sett flotte å se på, om enn litt (Beklager å måtte si det) "tørre".
De menneskene dine som er tegnet med blyant har du brukt alt for vage og søkende streker på. De blir liksom bare krusseduller. Tenk på hver eneste strek du lager, jo færre jo bedre. Til slutt har jeg en kommentar til den digitale kaninmannen din: Selv om karakteren din har et baggy kostyme på seg, pass på å skisse opp kroppen hans under drakten, for å sjekke at anatomien stemmer. Nå ser bena hans noe knekte ut. Og du vet sikkert at du trenger å øve på hender.
Beklager om jeg var litt røff med deg. Folk har vært røffe her med meg siden jeg lagde en bruker, og det har hjulpet meg enormt. Gleder meg til å se utviklingen din!
Found my way here from your drawing book thread. The Rob Zombie phrases drew me in. Good job with the watercolours, I think they show real potential. I know how difficult watercolours can be.
How about some watercolour anatomy studies?
Watercolors from yesterday and today.
#1 is a value exercise
#2 is another value exercise(leaving white spaces on the paper)
#3 is a scene from a photo
Those beach scenes are great Reaping!
And yeah, I meant exactly what you thought. Your anatomy still needs work; to be blunt. I thought combining those studies with your love of watercolour would yield some interesting results.
Skriver denne på engelsk så kanskje andre også kan ha nytte av den
I'm mainly going to echo what Star Eater said. You have some really solid watercolour skills. The value study is really cool. I don't have much experience with watercolour, but is it possible to go as dark in the ones with colour? By pushing the values even darker I believe you can create a greater sense of depth in your landscapes. Also, remember that elements in the distance tend to be lighter than elements close to the viewer. In your painting with the light house the furthest elements are just as dark as the foreground elements. I'm especially thinking about the bushes and shrubbery.
Keep it up, you're making good progress!
