    Nice sketchbook!But you seem to be drawing contours instead of form. I dont know what you are focusing on right now, but in my opinion studying perspective would give your drawing skill a real boost. Check out drawabox.com's lessons and How to draw book by Scott Roberson.

    The way you blend those watercolors look absolutely amazing! Great animal studies and such clean lines. Looking forward to see more

    You've come a really long way, it's amazing to see! I love your crisp lines and eye for geometry. Also your colour and painting studies rock!

    Hey stonec, I'm loving what I'm seeing on this page. I think you may have a knack for animals and creatures. They are very appealing. I also am loving your latest study. Your understanding of form, color, and value appears to be leveling up, based on this study.

    Ty Grumpy I feel like master studies have helped with pushing colors, but still experimenting

    looks good, don't know much about watercolors, just the basic stuff. One think I can say it's that the drawings look flat, the house looks flat and you need to work on making the drawings more 3D, but yeah keep working on it

    Good to see the watercolor results! motato is right, btw., since you decided to do monochromatic drawings and probably can't go much darker with the brown, maybe start even lighter. That way you "reserve" more values to go deep. This way you "used up" all the dark values that might have gone into details/foreground/showing depth. And if you can go dark, go dark >) I see many people being afraid of going dark with watercolors, but it's important. I like the jungel-y colors of the first sketch very much

    @Motato: Ty. Agreed
    @mkingamess: Ty Yea monochromatic masterstudies was one of assignments there, he teaches bit bold way of painting as you have to get those darks even if you have white of paper but of course you can add more paint while its wet
    Forgot to say First assignment was basic gradients, Second one was monochromatic, Third is muted colors
    Still having hard time with process but hopefully these are getting better, Way he paint is hit or miss values, light to dark

    Hi Stonec, based on these latest two, looks like you are getting more comfortable with getting in those darker cast and occlusion shadows and it's making a big difference. I've noticed a pattern with you that you 1.Avoid making cast shadows too dark. and 2. Rarely add occlusion shadows. I believe I've mentioned this before and I've found the lack off occlusion shadows the weakest part of your rendering, so it's nice to see you exploring them a bit. That occlusion shadow with it's color contrast and value under the boat really makes it pop and helps the comp achieve a nice sense of depth. There's still room for improvement, but it's nice to see you play with your shadows more.
