Day 20 - {Imagine} Watercolor

Hi, it's been a few days since I watercolor. Been quite busy this weekend. Plus something tragic happened for Singapore. The Sabah earthquake had claimed the lives of 6 Singaporean primary school kids and 1 teacher. 1 kid and 1 teacher are still missing. As a mum of 2 kids, this really weigh heavily on my heart. It's so heartpain. I pray that God will heal and comfort those who lost their loved ones and also heal those who are injured.

Yesterday I sketch this elf out with pencil and watercolor it. But I sort of spoil the sketch with my watercolor. Sketch is the same but the way I add the toning really can reshape the face. LOL. The nose looks flat and funny. Eyes seems to be narrower. Gosh... Really so tough to do portrait. I think I will stick to sketching with pencil and learn the toning and shading with pencil first. Till I master the skill, I think I won't do portrait for watercolor yet. So gambatte!!!

I like this sketch. Not perfect yet. But I like it.

This is the first coat of color for the skin.

Final product. Sob.. spoil it. You can see the face shape sort of change after I add shading/toning.  Gosh.. Now looks flat and thin face. And flat nose. Like after a botched cosmetic surgery. LOL..

Really not easy to do portrait. But I won't give up. Will continue learning and trying. Step by step.. first with pencil.

That's all for today's sharing. I will be "missing in action" for the next one week or so. Going to church camp and a short holiday in Penang. Look forward to the trip. I will bring along my sketchbook and watercolor kit. Hopefully I got time to create and able to blog about it when I come back.

Oh ya, forgot about another sketch I did in the weekend. This is a quick and rough sketch I did. Want to learn how to sketch quickly. Done this in my Moleskine sketchbook.

Hope you enjoy my sharing. So see you next week when I'm back from the trip. Have a fun week.

Thanks for dropping by.
