Sometimes I love pencil sketching before going in with watercolours but other times just thinking of starting even a loose sketch feels like a sort of hinderence. (That, if I think on too long or try and force the process, I risk falling into a procrastination patch, which I absolutely hate). So (after sitting, doing nothing for a good few minutes) I decided to dive straight into it, no preliminary sketch; just watercolour to paper. I remembered that I’d done it this way before – during my little challenge in February – and that I rather liked the sketchy, loose feel, focusing roughly on tones and shape.
I didn’t dare try putting faces on them – I have a hard time painting/drawing faces onto bodies for some reason. And I didn’t want to risk spoiling these.
Thanks for reading!
