In order to continue my mission to draw all the time and fill up more sketchbooks in 2016, I’m working on a new weekly theme to do daily drawings, while experimenting with watercolor. At the end of each week, it’s nice to have lots of new drawings and a full page illustration.
It’s been great fun been trying to draw all sorts of animals, so last week’s theme was Coral Reef. I used gouache this time which always produces brighter colors, with a splashes of watercolor. I tried hard not to use my black Micron pens for any outlining or details, which was a good challenge in working with paint and tiny paintbrushes.
Can’t wait to turn this sketchbook page into fun new digital art! Happy drawing!
