Alright, so here is a look at the first watercolor of 2016!
I’ve titled it “Matthew the Raven”, because I’ve been extremely into The Sandman series lately if you haven’t noticed. I plan on being done by Friday, maybe Thursday, but definitely by Friday.
Also, I have to admit there is actually a lot of oil pastel in the head. I enjoy mixing the two mediums together, especially when working with an image that is primarily black. The texture helps make it feel less flat to me.
And I owe a huge thank you to my future mother-in-law Margie Cohen, and her husband Dan, for getting me an easel for Christmas. The freedom to move into natural light is wonderful. Plus, my back and shoulders feel much better! No more leaning over a desk for two to three hours.
