February WIP

This month, I've been working on a number of different projects, but one I'd like to share with you is a larger watercolor piece.

After I stretched the paper over stretcher bars, I let it dry and then started creating a light yellow hue for the background. I like to create black ink marks first so that I can work my way back up to the colors of the surface. Large and small brushes are used throughout every layer of watercolor and gouache.

There's still many more layers I'd like to add to this piece before I can call it done. So by the end of this month it'll be ready for viewing!
