The pups' eyes are on the prize!
Today, I did a little research on watercolor techniques at the library -- since I've never had any formal training or classes. The book I borrowed, Basic Water Color Answer Book, had a lot of examples of really amazing washes and gradients. (BTW, I think the book may be out-of-print, so you may have to hunt it down in your local library.)
Inspired, I decided to give it a go in today's sketch. Also attempted inking the lines after I laid down the base colors, then layered more color on top to build more depth. Little by little, I think I'm getting the hang of things. ♥
