Here is a little something I worked on yesterday. I felt like painting something fun and thought of a garden gnome (they've always brought a smile to my face). For this painting, I started by making the drawing with gray watercolor pencil in order for the sketch to disappear completely once the painting process begins. Then I did an initial tracing with watercolors in the color of the area I would be painting inside. I don't always start my paintings by tracing my sketch but I thought that I would like some visible outlines at the end because this was going to be more of a ¨cartoony¨ style, so I just went for it. After that was just adding different layers of values. I made sure to jump around throughout the painting process in order to allow the layers to dry. This turned out pretty kitschy! I kind of like it!
Have a nice day!
