Jus’ unwinding with traditional tools one evening…

I’ve been playing closer attention to traditional approaches lately. Especially after watching another artist recently paint with coffee (!). Anyhow, I’m definitely not trying to generate anything serious or even billable. Instead it’s all about unwinding for now. So with that…

…first this fella was sketched in pencil before getting inked fountain pen style. Next came the (nearly dried shut) watercolors…

…and that’s when I did some stuff with those. Technically speaking of course. It was tempting to scan him and PS a few things…but I said “Nah.” Kinda goes against the whole exercise, right. So that’s that. Next I’ll share a few “warm-up sketches.” It’s a long story, but I only recently learned to warm-up before drawing…cause…uhm, evidently your suppose to warm-up first…but no one told me that…so, uhm, I’m kinda just learning about that…-s’okay moving on.
