Playing with watercolors a little bit.  It was nice to just relax and paint.  I should probably branch out from purple and blues at some point though :D

Great work. How's things going?

Beautiful colours! Did you know the greyhound is called Windhund in German? Because of this, to me the stormy background seems quite fitting as a backdrop for this animal. :)

And let me tell you, once the purple-and-blues Blues has taken a hold of you, it's quite difficult if not to say impossible to just quit. You may veer into different colours for a while or on occasion, but eventually you'll be drawn back to the purples and blues from their siren's call... ;)

Seeing zoom zoom...I expected a Mazda car XD

But the textures...well, someone checked couple of watercolor techniques tutorials :P

Awesome!

Astralseed's avatar

Yes! I need to go over some of them again, but this was a lot of fun

Wow, I wish I could use watercolors like this!

Astralseed's avatar

Having good paper makes a world of difference. I used Arches paper for this one and it gives a lot more freedom to manipulate the paint than a lot of other papers do for me.

Very good advice, actually, and thanks for the rec. I have really cheap watercolors and not....real watercolour paper. Maybe that's why the medium frustrates me so much.

Astralseed's avatar

When I was younger in school we always used watercolors in art class but never used proper watercolor paper. I hated the medium so much! I can definitely say having the right tools makes a world of difference though. Even cheap watercolor paper is a huge step up from regular paper if you want to work with watercolors.

just branch out when you run out of purples/blues xD

Astralseed's avatar

lol, it's a brand new set so there's still a lot of blue and purple :D ... it's also a set with extra blues and purples because I love blues and purples apparently :D
