  • Lanterns! 😃 (Working on tonal values. Light ☀️ vs shadow ◼️ also). Cheapo watercolors. The black always felt like mistakes and panic. The brown was really relaxing and had some nice blending and movement going on. #artprogression (The change from progression picture 2 to 3 is subtle.). 🎨 I think the overall color scheme came out very pleasing.
.
NOTE: This is the Strathmore vision journal, bristol paper. It will fight you a bit with watercolor. (You can get some streaking, and your blends won’t be as smooth.)
. 
I think my biggest problem with this set is actually going to be the fact that the colors aren’t transparent enough. So I had to go back over my lines. #extrawork 
.
(lightfastness is usually only an issue if it’s not closed in your sketchbook. It’s one of my number one things I look for in a watercolor. But this transparency issue is the biggest factor here, because doing lines over can make things look messy or sketchier.)

  • Art therapy. Keeping busy. 🎨 been working on creating earth palettes. Quick sketch to practice people and limited palette.
.
Used non-lightfast jane davenport palette i got for the neutral scheme & the gold tin. I figured if the colors were a nice set up, I would just pick similar colors in professional paints.
.
I set up some cheap palettes, using up some non-light fast paint laying around, to practice value studies. Buildings, people, etc. 💥 I need more practice training my brain to take the lightest values and bleach them out to white. Because it reads better in watercolor. 
.
💥 GROUP THE TONAL VALUES, 💥 *SIMPLIFY* TONAL VALUES, 
💥 USE LESS DETAIL!! 
There, maybe shouting will get it into my head. 😛

  • Lots of new people on here and I wanted to say hi! 👋 I’m Megan! I’m kinda tall, and love drinking tea and walking, and tend to read 2-4 books at one time (which sometimes works and sometimes not so much 😉).

Since I was young, I’ve drawn off and on for the joy of it. ALL sorts of subjects - stuffed animal portraits was a passion at one point 😆. This past year I dove into #urbansketching and #sketchjournaling for fun, and have got to do some illustration commissions as well!

This account began as a way to hold myself accountable to practicing, kind of like a visual journal. It’s grown into connecting with other artists and those who enjoy art! So hello! It’s very nice to meet you this virtual way. 😁

PS. My husband and I just got back from a week of RV camping up the Oregon coast, so there may be an overload of coast-themed sketches in coming days.😉

  • I’ve had my eyes on this historic Wasserturm, or water tower, in Berlin’s Bergmannkiez ever since discovering it online a few weeks ago. Just a 30 minute bike ride from my apartment in Friedrichshain, it’s definitely been on my “must sketch” list for a while. 
.
Luckily, I was able to capture it in my sketchbook one evening last week and add it to my compilation of tower sketches. While I originally set out just to sketch the tower itself, I loved the urban feeling that the parked cars added to the scene and decided to sketch them too. 
.
To be honest, I’m sometimes hesitant to add cars and automobiles to an architecture sketch, since I’m afraid they’ll take away from the main focus (ie, the buildings). So this time, I decided to sketch more than just the outline of the cars but still leave them white. I have to say, I’m quite happy with the result! ☺️
