Reviving the Strathmore Class--Free! (Lesson 3)
Hi all...years ago (2012! Time flies!), Strathmore Papers asked me if I'd be one of the artists in their series of free workshops, and of course I agreed! Watercolor Sketching is one of my favorite things.There's little enough I can do to help those who are housebound, self-isolating, social distancing or quarantined, I think now is a good time to make the class easily available again, so for the next few days I'm going to link to one of the 4 lessons...
By the way, I LOVE referring to our social distancing as being "artists-in-residence!"
So, HERE is Lesson 3--this one's on 3 different ways to work with watercolor, direct application with no underdrawing, one with a pencil guidelines, and one an ink drawing with washes over--two different approaches. There's no one right way to work, explore and choose whichever fits your vision for the subject.
|I just did a light pencil underdrawing on this one of my husband reading one of our favorite books...|
|For this one, I worked very slowly to add the pattern in the carpet, no underdrawing...fun!|
(I'm sorry I can't find the original art that I used in the videos, but I'm hoping the ones I find to share here will be inspiration enough to get you started!)
And don't forget, I have a LOT of free how-to videos on my YouTube channel...there will be more available in the coming weeks. https://www.youtube.com/user/KateJosTube
