I'm still doing my homework for Suzanne McDermott's online class diligently. I really didn't do a good job this past week but I'm blaming the migraine 2 days that week for not being able to focus and do a good job and/or to see well enough to know that my work looked fuzzy when I photographed it. Oh, well. We have gone into COLOR this week and are getting to know our paints, brushes and paper :) But I still want to keep drawing and make it a practice I do and enjoy, not just something I do in order to get to the color.
Here's a little imaginary landscape I started while waiting for some color exercises to dry for the online class. It needs some darks touched in here and there and perhaps a darker foreground.
This one is in my Arches travel pad, 6 x 10" 140# coldpress paper.
For the online course, we're using Strathmore Windpower Watercolor Pad (6 x 9) and it's a nice surface to work on - not exactly coldpress but not hotpress either.
