Watercolor Sketching

I sketched with a Micron 02 and some watercolors after I painted the pastel at the park.

This is for the Scavenger Hunt 458.  I lost track on numbering as I was using pastels and two different sketchbooks.  This is a large watercolor sketchbook about typing page size.
Beverage container, crumpled paper, salt shaker and flat (the watercolor box)

The top sketch is just playing with watercolors.  I need much practice.
The bottom is a little iron pot Sue has to make steam when sitting on the wood stove.  It is very cute and I did not come close to doing justice.  Lack of concentration??

We will be on the road again tomorrow...  We will see how it goes.  Heading north, don't know if we will make Canada or not.

It has been a good week with Sue!!

Jennifer Rose, thank you. I need to do some color swatches with my colors. I have two little sets and they are both different.

Jennifer Rose Phillip said...

different how? colours,tubes,blocks?

Jo Castillo said...

Jennifer Rose, yes. :) Different companies so the blocks of colors are different. When I can, I have both out so I can use the different shades I'd red, etc.
