    I think your drawings are great. Good to see that you find your own way to use semi-blind drawings.
    Keep drawing.

    Haven't had too much time today. Made this crow in watercolors. I'm pretty happy with it.

    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,

    thanks again

    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.

    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.

    the firefighters look cool , so do your watercolors .
    Im tempted to give watercolor a try too so i can paint in my sketchbook when i'm not outdoors.
    What colors should i buy when starting out ? since i only painted digitally .

    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.
