Day 30 prompt for World Watercolor Month is 'Stormy Days' featuring my OC Falcon. This is the last individual piece I'll post for the month; a compilation of all my pieces for WWM will come sometime later. You can also see them on my social media as well (links above). 

Wanted to try painting with a 2-colour palette (crimson red & deep green). I liked being able to focus on values more this way. Couldn't use more wet-in-wet on this paper, but interesting experience!

Lovely painting!

This is really beautiful!
It's possible to feel the storm, the cool air rushing through the window...
Like he opens himself to that thunderstorm - outside, inside...

And your painting of the shadows looks very great!
Also the reduced colour palette - everything looks like it fits well together that way.
Thank you much for sharing! :heart:

Very nice work!

Has a nice minimalist approach with great technical skill. Some of your work feels a little rough around the edges but you have strong visual story telling and that to me makes me think you're going to go some where as an artist. So keep it up.

Thank you for the kind words! I definitely still have a lot of things to improve on, but it's encouraging to hear that my work has some potential. :)

Courage for the Cause by HustonCinematic 2014 (me, rough around the edges)

...

When it is Very Bright by HustonCinematic couple days ago (feeling more confident)


We do not become better. We merely learn to express ourselves more. I can't wait to see what your work looks like in another three years :) :D
