a 5x7" watercolor for my Drawing II class! Just copied from a photo, and despite my dislike for watercolor, I found this project pretty enjoyable? It's been so long since I've done traditional media, I guess I would like anything, hahaha.

ALSO if any of you didn't see my journal earlier today, if you have a facebook, please vote for my design! Just "like" the photo to vote for my skateboard design :)

That's hella tight! My only suggestion is you could have used some indigoes and violets, rather than black, but hey it turned out great either way. (:

I definitely could have but I was laaaaazy :P (honestly the background was a mixture of solid black and dark dark green so it didn't even occur to me until later that I could have attempted using another color and not black)
Thank you though! =D
